Swooning and beyond

I have two projects on the go with the Swoon pattern from Camille Roskelly. One making the 24" blocks in Happy Mochi Yum Yum and a red background and a 12" version in browns and duck egg blues. One bright and cheerful, the other elegant and subtle (my middle names!).

This weekend I completed my fourth 24" block in white and green. This is my favourite colour combo so far.

And this is the fourth (and final) of the 12" blocks. I've got some ideas for sashing and then this will be a wall hanging for our bedroom.

Earlier this week, Katie, who got me into this Swoony mess with her Flickr group announced some ideas for the next quilt along. There are two options, both patterns by Camille: On a Whim or Hopscotch. On a Whim uses fat quarters, Hopscotch uses a jelly roll. I think I'll do both. But first I really need to finish my Swoony projects!

Your swoon blocks are beautiful. I am jumping in the deep end with Hopscotch and doing it in Bliss. On a Whim is on my to-do list when I can get my hands on a FQ bundle of Vintage modern :o)

I love your Swoony mess, Jennie! I like the subtle wall hanging colors, and I LOVE LOVE the bright colors of Happy Mochi Yum Yum. That is one of my favorites of all time that I've seen! :o) I am in a bit of a Swoony mess myself. LOL
