Scrappy Swoon Redux - Finished!

I finished this late Sunday, but it took me until tonight to get it washed/dried and decent pictures taken.

Scrappy Swoon Redux

The scrappiness of this one is much more controlled than the last one.  The white-on-white prints, versus a mix of low-volume prints makes it a cleaner look.  I think I could have expanded the beiges into tans more and been okay, but wouldn’t want to go lighter and minimize the contrast with the background.  I’d also love this with a teal instead of beige, but didn’t have enough fabric in that color to make it work.

For the quilting, I used matching thread in each section, with meanders in the blue and white, and radiating parallel lines in the beige.

The back of the quilt is a white on white print, so the quilting stands out a bit in those blue and beige thread colors.

Now to show it off at guild and then pack it away until the wedding date is set for the lucky couple. I got a little ahead of myself in making it, but I’ve always been one to plan ahead!

EDITED: Forgot to add the link to the original tutorial so those who want to make one of their own. It measures 72×72″ finished.

About Pam the Head Rhombus

I like quilts, cats, math, and science fiction. Not always in that order.

  1. Beautiful Pam! I love the different styles of quilting in the different parts of the swoon! I’m sure the happy couple will love it. It’s good to be prepared and plan ahead!

    Love this quilt, Pam! What size is it?

  3. Very nice! If this is the one you mentioned possibly doing grey as an alternative, I agree, that would look good too. Also, on a prideful note, I do know how to spell recommend. I noticed randomly that I in my last comment I misspelled it. Oh the joys of typing on a phone. :)

    Also, thanks for keeping me entertained while I hand bound a quilt. It was very helpful. Feel free to do it again.

    Beautiful! I love quilts with gigantic stars and whatnot, been thinking of doing this one when I get finished with the sampler.

  5. So stunning. I love your play on colour and texture. It just goes to show how something simply can be truly powerful when done just right. Thanks for sharing!
