Scrappy Swoon Quilt Along

I am so excited to announce the Scrappy Swoon Quilt Along!   Inspired by Camille Roskelley’s Swoon pattern, this quilt is one Swoon block enlarged to 72 inches square and made from scraps.  It’s a lot of piecing, but it’s really very simple to make; all squares and half square triangles.  Once you’ve started it comes together quickly.  So raid your stash/scraps and jump in with us!  I hope you love making this quilt.

My second Scrappy Swoon quilt, made for the Quilt Along:



  1. Wow! What a beautiful quilt. I stumbled upon this and I must join in. I hope I am not too late to the party. I have a whole drawer of 2 1/2″ squares, so I plan to make mine smaller. I didn’t find the code to add your button to my sidebar.

  2. I love this quilt and your blog seems fun. How do I follow you though? I can’t find a follow button!

  3. Just wondering about your washing process for a quilt like this, I am assuming you haven’t washed this quilt yet, I was wondering if the red esp. Would bleed on to the whites. Did you prewash fat quarters before?

  4. I am in love with this quilt! What a great idea! I just stumbled across it…so I will have to start plotting and pulling fabrics. :) thanks for the great QAL and tutorial.
