I want to make Swoon. I'd been drawn to the pattern before, but since I saw Amanda's version here, I've been getting a little obsessed. And then I saw this one. I love regular quilts made with Halloween fabrics.

I was hoping to buy some light grey fabric for the background, but the best they had was a darker purplish grey. I took it over to the Halloween fabrics and held up some of the orange and black prints. I think it'll work. It'd better, since I've got six yards of it!

Is it just me? Every time I go to the fabric store hoping to buy fabric for a specific project, I wind up settling for something that's not quite what I was hoping for. Or leaving empty handed.

With enough patience, I probably could have found a grey sheet at the thrift store. But I want this quilt NOW! (And have conveniently pretended to forget the dozen other things I need to be working on.)

Alex found the Dia de Los Muertos fabric and it was just too neat for me not to buy a yard. I'm thinking I'll use it in a quilt, but not anytime soon.

Boy, I am anxious to see what you make. It is a great pattern, and I love Halloween. Keep us posted!

Swoon is on my want-to-do list as well. It should be great in halloween fabrics.

It isn't 'just you' at all! Overwhelmed by choice is my usual affliction. Now make that quilt!
