My Swoon House Block

Ever since I saw Blue Mountain Daisy’s blog and how she used Camille Roskelley’s Swoon pattern to make a Swoon House block, I had to create one of my own.

The Swoon pattern is made with half square triangles and flying geese. While I am not a big fan of precision piecing, I felt it was worth the effort to make this, ” oh so cute block “.  The bright white background took on a pinkish tint when I photographed it. The grey flannel design board underneath the quilt top probably didn’t help the color outcome.

The unfinished block is a 24.5 inch square. It is big enough to add borders and make a small quilt. The pattern suggest making 9 blocks and creating a 80″  x 80” quilt. What I like about the  pattern is that it would look terrific in either modern or traditional fabrics.
