initial idea , choosing fabrics and layout!).
So this morning before work, I decided to take some photos in the early morning light. I had fun wandering around the garden looking for a spot to show it off.
Wilbur wandered around following me, not quite awake himself. I’m sure that dog thinks I’m half cracked! (Charly wisely stayed in bed and didn’t poke her head out until breakfast!)
I really like how bright and colourful it is. My swap partner loves rainbow quilts and bright modern fabrics on white backgrounds. She also loves Heather Ross but I couldn't find anything I liked for the centre of the star so I mirrored the half square triangles and tried to arrange the centre star along complimentary colours touching the outer ring e.g. blue and yellow, red and green.
This was a really fun project! The quilt pattern for this Swoon block can be found in Camille Roskelly's shop. The block measures 24" square finished and is an update of a traditional block that Camille found on a vintage quilt. If you want to follow step by step instructions Camille teaches how to make this quilt block on Craftsy's in her class Pre-cut piecing made simple.
