Swooning over Denyse

Having fallen in love with the Swoon block, I've decided to make a quilt from Denyse Schmidt's lovely Shelburne Falls, in the blue and green colourway.
I've used the Sizzix bigshot die-cutting machine to cut lots of squares and triangles for my hsts.




As the blocks are quite large at 16inches, you really don't need many to make a good-sized quilt. I've made nine, and have decided to quilt-as-you-go so I can do some intense machine quilting. As you can see, I'm quilting in half-inch parallel lines. I'm planning on sewing the blocks together with a slim strip of plain navy which I think will frame the blocks nicely.
I am aiming to get it finished for Quilts UK at Malvern in a couple of weeks, so I best get on with it, good job its a bank holiday weekend!
