When The Bough Breaks
Topic: Quilting

When Pinterest popped up with a picture of a Swoon Block I immediately envisioned it as a single big block for making a baby quilt.

I had identical fabrics in three colors. (Color rendition is poor as they are actually cream, steel grey and shell pink.) This is 40 inches square made up of 4-inch units.


Because of the little branches printed on the fabrics I used an embroidery stitch of leafy vines for quilting. I used the stitch to outline every block of color and separate the border from the block. I also used it to hold down the binding.


The backing uses the same shell pink fabric.
