A little while back I was reading quilt blogs and came across a lovely scrappy Swoon block. Later I wanted to find it again but I did not know where I had seen it or who had made it. I searched and searched and found it was made by Erin Singleton. Check out her Jan. 17, 2012 post at http://Twomoreseconds.com
It inspired me to make one which I did today.
I went through my green and blue scraps and pulled out pieces about 2 ½” and 3”. This afternoon I cut all the pieces and marked the ones for HST. Since the Swoon block has 81 pieces I broke it down and sewed it like nine patch units. It has a lot of seams but it went together smoothly. My block will finish at 16”.
In my searching I also found Double Nickel Quilts Blog with a little different piecing with fewer pieces.
I'm a Ginger Monkey Blog started a Swoon Along.
Another blog with lovely scrappy swoon blocks.
