Bohemian Swoon





close up of the quilting

Pieced backing
Currently residing on our bed.

I should also mention that I'm binding quilt number five of five that I will soon offer for up for sale.  I plan on putting them on my website  soon.  There you will find all the details (once I list them) but I'll be sure to mention it here once they are up and available.  Thank you to each of you for your constant encouragement and support in this regard.  It means more than you know.

This is absolutely fantastically gorgeous, Dana! I have yet to meet a swoon block that I didn't like, but this is awesome. I am currently working on an aqua and orange swoon quilt. Great job!

What an eye catcher! Is that a bella gray? What a perfect background color it gives all the colors a real rich feeling.
Nice :0).

Happy Sewing

What a great version of the Swoon blocks quilt. Super colours and fabrics.

amy smart said...

It's so awesome, Dana! I'm so impressed. I've started a Swoon quilt but the farthest I've got is buying the pattern. Oh, I did pick a little fabric.

Thanks for the beautiful motivation to continue! Hope you have a great weekend!

Cor, I love the colours you've used in this quilt! Swoon seems to be everywhere in blog land at the moment - seeing the colours you used I'm definitely tempted to swoon-along now.

beth lehman said...

wow - it's really lovely! i found myself not so interested in swoon early on - but i keep seeing so many different versions that i love!

Wendy said...

Your quilt is very beautiful!I am so glad to see you used a non-white background for your blocks. I think it really makes the blocks pop....
