I started my Swoon quilt way back in January of 2012. I kept up with the swoon along on Flickr for a few months, I think I made 6 blocks before I stopped dead in my tracks. Then last May for my A Lovely Year of Finishes goal, I swore I would finish my top, and I did!
I love this top! It is probably one of my most favorite (for me) quilts I’ve ever made. Then I stopped dead in my tracks again. The reason was/is silly but I bet many of you can identify…I didn’t want to cut into the remainder of my precious Half Moon Modern fabrics. After all, it is an out of print line that is still in high demand. If I cut them and used them…then I wouldn’t have them anymore.
Fast forward to January of 2014 and my self-imposed fabric diet. I decided I wasn’t buying anymore fabric so I had better finish my projects with what I have!
My goal this month has been to make a backing for my Swoon. I decided on a giant star so I could feature some of my favorite scissor prints from the line. I didn’t use a tutorial for the backing, though I know there are tons out there for giant stars. Anne insists on having her picture taken with all of my quilting projects so here is the obligatory cute picture (sorry, I just can’t help myself but to share her adorableness).
