Swoon sucker

My powers are about as resistant as Superman's to Kryptonite.
Since the Swoon quilt is on my list of finishes for 2012, I don't think I'm breaking any rules.
The Swoon-along hosted by Katy.

I've auditioned many fabrics and I think these 18 have got the part.
Several Denyse Shmidt from Spotlight have snuck their way in.
The last thing I need is to work out what background colour.
Blue? Green? Grey?
Big decisions.

Oh and did I mention that I have my first proper finish for 2012?

I started this quilt last year when I was given the fabric and thought my unborn needed a quilt. I liked the colour of the fabric but not that chuffed by the print or feel of the fabric (rough).
I've quilted it simply in the ditch and finally got the binding finished last night.
Great to add my first entry in the 12 WIP's in 2012 and
a relief!



  1. I succumbed too. Bought the pattern yesterday. I do love the idea of having a bed-size quilt with nine blocks. Love your fabrics.

  2. Great fabric choice and I would use a grey for the background.
    Well done on the finish.

  3. I'm Favouring Grey too..Love your Fabric choices..will be a lovely quilt.

  4. Love the colours you have chosen. I'm sure it will be great.
    Love your new blog heading (Well, I hope it's new 'cause I only just noticed it!)

  5. Hey, the 'unborn' is still under five. That's a surefire WIN by my reckoning!

  6. Well done! And why resist when the pattern AND fabrics are lovely?!

  7. love the little birdies and the colours.
