A Quilty Finish - Ruby Swoon

And the slack Blogger award goes to Me!

I don't "do" New Year Resolutions but I am going to try and be more disciplined
and Blog more in 2016.  

So with that said, here was my last finish for 2015.

My Ruby Swoon.

This beast finished at 98" square and is pictured below on a Queen sized bed.

I have teamed the Ruby Fabric from Bonnie and Camille with some Black Essex Linen.

I do love this combination and seeing this quilt all finished makes me happy and with it the realisation that much loved and "hoarded" fabrics need to be made into something that can be loved and used and not left to "show" on a shelf.

I am also getting some of the Essex Linen quilted in the same all over pattern to make into some large European Cushions.  Yes a full room makeover is is progress.

The quilting on this one was done by Linda over at Ladybug Quilting.
The link to Linda's Facebook page is just over there on the right.
I can highly recommend Linda, she does beautiful work.

Quilty Stats

Pattern is Swoon by Thimble Blossoms
(I did modify the size of the blocks so that I could cut bigger pieces 
to avoid cutting the fabrics and to show them off more with no seams).
Finished Size - 98" Square
Fabrics - Ruby by Bonnie and Camille
Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Black


  1. It's great. I've yet to make a swoon yet but I heard they were huge blocks.

  2. Wow! your quilt is gorgeous, Ruby looks fabulous with the darker fabric..

  3. Looks gorgeous, I think modifying the pattern is a good idea, why sew more seams then you need to - but agree, want to show off those lovely big prints as much as possible.

  4. How great does it look with the dark background! Lovely finish, Sharon.

  5. This is absolutely beautiful! The dark background shows off the Ruby fabrics so well.
