In my podcast today I mentioned the Swoon quilt I had made for a friend this week.
Most of the fabric comes from the Sophie line from Moda, which is a couple years old. I know she likes retro prints, so it was a perfect fit (plus I had made her other things from the line which she liked).
Rather than do the straight sashing, I added some cornerstones to help me keep the blocks lined up, and added some star points to the center one to make a little tiny Hunter’s star.
I used the waste triangles from the flying geese for top/bottom borders, as well as a row on the pieced back. I’m happy with how it turned out, and hope it helps her feel a little better. The name comes from RuPaul’s Drag Race, which is a common interest of ours (and is honestly the tamest of the phrases I could use!).
