Swoon Blocks for August – do. Good Stitches

For the month of August, we were asked to do a swoon block in for the Joy circle in do. Good Stiches. Helen asked us blocks in light colours, blues, greens, grey and white for the background.

This is such a nice design by Camille Roskelley. You can buy the pattern for a quilt which is made out of 9 swoon blocks. I was happy to have a chance to try out the block. I love how the piecing of the Alexander Henry Heath in Steel Gray turned out. You can hardly see the piecing line. I think it is a great print for such intricate piecing.

The finish size of this block is 24″. So for this month, we only had to do one block instead of the usual two. But we were asked to provide a piece of fabric of the same size to go with it. Below you can see the fabric I picked next to the block.

I can wait to see what this quilt will look like once the blocks are all put together. It will certainly make someone happy!
