TGIFF is here and I think I might Swoon!

All right, so I'm not super talented when it comes to original post titles!

I am super excited to be hosting the TGIFF linky party this week and for the occasion, I've been working day and night to get my Swoon all finished. (I haven't really worked all night, but did spend quite a bit of time on it over the last week.)

Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great and I didn't have any quilt holders on hand, but here are a couple of pictures.


The designer is obviously the wonderful Camille Roskelley and I used Lucy's Crab Shack to piece the blocks... Kona white as the background... And more Lucy's Crab Shack for the binding.


I quilted it with straight lines, about 1 1/4" apart, using painter's tape as my guide.


This finish has been in the works for a year people! I still can't believe she is finally done!

Have you finished anything recently? Wanna share? Go ahead and link up those wonderful finishes.  Be sure to tour the other finishes and spread the comment love far and wide!  Please include a link back to TGIFF (button in my sidebar).

Let's party!

Thanks for hosting TGIFF, Izzy. The Swoon quilt is lovely and I love your fabric choices. It is colourful, yet very soft. Lovely!

Bravo pour tes lignes et tout le reste. C'est un motif tellement simple, mais qui prend tellement de temps. Et tellement répétitif. Un an, c'est long. Dire que j'ai un projet en cours depuis presque 2 ans, ça doit faire un an que je n'y ai pas touché. Je trouve toujours une excuse pour en faire passer un autre devant....

It's so great! I adore your plaid binding and the quilting loks so good!

It is so pretty! The colors are so pretty and I love the texture that the straight line quilting adds. Perfect binding choice too!

Kate said...

Gorgeous swoon quilt, the straight line quilting really shows it off. Beautiful.

Ginette said...

Fantastic! It turned out beautifully! I love the idea of using painters tape as a guide. As usual the colours you picked are awesome! Is this one going on your bed?

Amy said...

It's perfect! I just love the fabrics and your quilting! Now what are you making next? I think I am going to finish up some WIPs and then start a Granny Squares quilt??? Thank you for the motivation and the inspiration!

Lorna McMahon said...

What a fab finish! Love the fabrics you chose and your straight line quilting. She's a beauty! Thanks so much for hosting TGIFF, Izzy.

There was something about the Lucy's Crab Shack color palette that I just loved, and your SWOON looks wonderful in it!

This looks great! And the quilting is super yum. Congrats on your finish!

Katherine said...

Gorgeous finish, Izzy! Your Swoon looks awesome in the Lucy's Crab Shack line and your quilting let's those blocks shine. (My own Swoon quilt still awaits quilting... a year after starting... ;o).

Valerie Reynolds said...

I agree with everyone else....a great finish. My finish this week found me using the Lucy's Crab Shack line too. Stop by: myplvl.blogspot.com THanks for hosting!! It was nice to stop by your blog.

I love the swoon block. I should make one sooner rather than later.

Yay! Great finish. Love that fabric line :) Totally missed the boat on the whole Linky Party, been out of it lately!

Oh Izzy, this quilt is gorgeous! I love everything about it--the pattern, the fabrics, the quilting. Are you going to keep this quilt at your cottage? For some reason I think it looks like a quilt for a vacation home!

Michele said...

I adore it Izzy! Amazing! You did a wonderful job hosting :-)
