NewSwoon - Finished!

I don’t really have a better name for this quilt, but I guess I’ll have to think of something when I label it! For now, it’s the NewSwoon! Reminds me of Newsroom, which has absolutely no bearing on the background or purpose for this quilt.

I picked fabrics that mixed batiks and prints within each block in a mix of blues, teals, grays, and browns.

Here’s a shot of the quilt in its entirety:

New Swoon

I used 2″ strips (1 1/2″ finished) for sashing with some cornerstones in the same tones from my leader and ender stash.  I think the smaller cornerstones really pop, although typically I prefer to use sashing and cornerstones in the same size increments as used in blocks. These particular cornerstones are half the finished size of the block components are 3″ finished for the HSTs and flying geese, so the math is simpatico if not exact.

Now to wrap it up and keep the cats off of it until it get to it’s final home!

  1. Love these colors together. I think it is so interesting to see how different the same block can be depending on fabric placement, color choices, and block size.

  2. Nice color choices. I like the small cornerstones with this set of blocks. It was nice to see it in person.
