This is why it's called Swoon

If you've been paying attention, you'll know that I'm a big fan of Ruby (and it seems that a lot of others are too!)

When Camille's beautiful Swoon pattern came out in May last year, I might well have been one of the first people to buy it. But I wanted to wait for Ruby to come out, because I just absolutely adored her version of it (you can see it here). As luck would have it, the clever people at Fat Quarter Shop put together a kit for Swoon in Ruby, and I snapped it up late last year and got to work.

Individually, the blocks are beautiful. I've enjoyed every single one of them.

But together, they're something else again. This is why this quilt is called Swoon, because that is what you can't help doing when you see it. (By the way, it's a mahusive quilt - around 80 inches square, requiring furniture to be moved...)

Thanks Camille, for an awesome pattern, and beautiful fabrics. This is a very special quilt I'll treasure forever.

Linking up today to Lee's Work-in-progress Wednesday and Our Creative Spaces.
