Swoon - I have been bitten by the bug...

Sometimes a design will just capture your attention. Make you look twice. Or thrice. Or more. This design has done just that. I think the name of the block should be changed to SWOON & DROOL. Much more appropriate I think.

Katy over at Monkey Do, is hosting this quilt along. There really aren't any deadlines. I can most certainly do that. There is also a flickr group. Go on, check it out. Even if you don't want to Swoon with us, you can drool over all the gorgeous blocks these talented ladies are making into dreamy quilts.

One of my goals for 2012 is to make 12 quilts. Well, I have 9 of them already in various stages of progress. BUT that leaves me room for 3 more. SO, I am going to make a SWOON quilt. Cool your jets, I am going to finish 3 of the quilts in progress before I start another one. (maybe)  BUT, how, oh how, can I pass up this quilt-a-long!!!

not the best picture, but it's the best I have at almost midnight

The block here will be put into the Citrus quilt I am in the midst of making. This isn't the color scheme for MY Swoon quilt. I still haven't decided on that. Yet. I LOVE this block. SO much so, that I made a 12 inch version for my Citrus quilt this past summer. I didn't have the pattern, I just sorta made it up as I went along. I'll get the pattern for the quilt.

Here are a few of the quilts that made me Swoon & Drool:

Go ahead and Swoon. You know you want to.

You were right, they are definitely swoonable.

I swoon at the pretty pictures and will swoon when you make some of these for yourself - love that citrus palette!
