Swoon, A Friday Finish!

I first posted about Swoon in September 2011, and now it's finally done! Actually, it was so nearly done for a long time, but I couldn't decide on what to use for the binding. I finally decided to keep it simple and used a solid aqua.

It's no wonder this pattern, Swoon, is so beloved by so many.  The results are striking, and I love everything about this quilt.  The fabric is Heirloom by Joel Dewberry, which is still at the top of my list of awesome collections.

It was machine quilted using a pattern called "Pretty Plumes," by Judy Allen.  I wanted something organic and flowing.  This pattern did not disappoint and was a pleasure to quilt.
