scrappy little Swoon quilt

My first reaction to any pattern is usually "What if I made that scrappier?" Okay, my first reaction to Swoon was that I wanted to make it in Halloween prints...then I started thinking about a scrappy version. Friday, I saw that Debbie from A Quilter's Table had already done it. And look at this one, which I just found while I was looking for the link to the scrappy one!

sigh

I could make a whole bunch of Swoon quilts.

But right now I'm playing with a scrappy one block baby quilt, using my AccuQuilt Half Square 4" Triangle die because that bring it up to almost baby quilt size. I may add a narrow plain border.



I'll definitely shift the blocks around a bit before I put it together.

Beth over at Love Laugh Quilt is having a Pincushion Parade. Now that I think about it, I've only actually made one pincushion and that one was a test to see if I could make the fabric part of a knitted pincushion that I never did finish.



Maybe it's because I keep my pins in a tin and never actually use a pincushion.

You've still got until Tuesday night to enter the Jockey Sports Bra and Purex Crystals giveaway.

I like your scrappier version ... it makes me smile! I don't use a pincushion, either -- I have one of those (actually, several of those) magnetic pinholders which I love! :)

I wouldn't change a thing about that scrappy carpenter's star. I love it just as it is! :)

Also a magnetic pin holder person :)

Love from Indiana! ~bonnie

hi love your scrappier blocks¡
i do use the cloth pincushions, i feel its easier to pick just ona at the time, but i love the magnetic ones when i have to pick up a lot of pins from the floor.
Happy stitching day¡

Hello! Love the swoon block! That seems to be so popular! I just entered the pincushion parade and like your test cushion!!! :)

I'd be lost without my pincushions! They are spread all over the house so no matter where I park my little behind, I am good to go!
