Starting to Swoon

I bought some fat quarters back in August last year to start a swoon quilt.  I LOVE star quilts so when I saw lots of swoon quilts on flickr, I knew I wanted to make one (plus I love anything Camille Roskelley makes).  I started with this initial stack:

and wasn't sure if I should add in some navy so I asked my readers and everyone said yes! So here is my new stack with some navy thrown in there.  I like it much better so thanks for the tips:)

My goal this month is to cut out the white background for all of the stars and to finish one block.  These blocks are pretty big, 24 inches big, so we'll see how it goes.  Excited to get started on this quilt:)  I'm linking up here:


  1. ohhhh love the colors mix and patterns!!!

  2. oh I love your picks, you will love the Swoon, I have made 1, and have bought the fabric for a second already

  3. Ooooh, Caroline - the addition of the navy is just right, isn't it?!!! Love the looks of this pile, have fun getting started on your Swoon!!!

  4. Oooohhhh love this fabric collection! I love everything from them as well. Good luck on your goal! I hope you get to finish it!
