Have you heard about Swoon 2013? It's a fun quilt along being hosted by Sarah @ FairyFace Designs using Camille Roskelley's lovely Swoon quilt pattern.
I fell in love with this pattern last year and I guess I just needed an easy excuse to start "Swooning Along". Just take a look at the pretty blocks being sharing in the Swoon 2013 Flickr group and see how well you resist the temptation! ;o)
With pattern in hand, I started searching for fabric candidates and got hooked on prints in the Madrona Road collection. Here's my initial fabric selections.
|Along with Madrona Road is some Sherbet Pips (for the background) and some stripes (for the binding).|
Ah, yes, pink and orange. I'm hooked! I think it's becoming a favourite colour combination. Maybe that explains how much of it seems to have wandered into my stash in the past year. ;o)
Shown below is my second selection of fabrics from my stash (top row in pic below) to round things out with the first choices. I love fabric auditions!
Even though I'm still auditioning final choices for which fabrics I will use in my quilt, I couldn't resist making my first block.
I am in LOVE. Prepare yourself for more Swoon blocks. ;o)
