Every afternoon, me and my husband sit on our diy sofa, and watch TV Series, eating sunflower seeds (we are totally addicted to them). Robby is just in love with sunflower seeds. He gets all crazy when we sit on the sofa, because he knows that it is time for a treat.
Back to our WIP. I have been planning to make a Swoon quilt for quite some time now. Deciding on the fat quarters that I would use, was surely a challenge, but an easy one. The main goal was not using white as a background…
Using the Amy Butler “Soul Blossoms” line of fabric for the stars of the swoon, and for the background I purchased “Sketched” from Timeless Treasures.
For now I am in love with this first block…fortunately all blocks are already cut and ready to sew…so I believe this top will soon be finished.

Robby is so beautiful and I’m sure he gets lots of goodies! Your quilt block is fantastic and what a wonderful fabrics! x Teje
Oh my gosh, Robby is too cute! I would give him all the sunflower seeds. I also love the “Sketched” fabric in that block!
So eye catching”. Your piecing is amazing!
The “Sketch” line is totally perfect for a semi-solid background. I totally recommend it.
Thank you Ashley! I’ ve had this line for ages, and really did not like it in any quilt pattern…don’t know why. But in the swoon they are just glowing!
I love your choice of fabrics – I think this might be my favorite use of Soul Blossoms!
Those colors are really pretty…and that dog? Just too cute!
I think your swoon block looks fab. I love the blue background.
I think the colors just sparkle. The blue really makes the fat quarter choices pop. Definitely something I would choose. And Robby is just darling!
