Persimmon Swoon {a finished quilt!}

I’m so happy to FINALLY share my finished Persimmon Swoon with you all!!Β  It has been done for a couple of weeks, but with snow, frigid temps and no sun, I haven’t been able to get any decent photos until today.

I still can’t take a photo outside because if it isn’t snow covered, it’s muddy.Β  So these indoor photos will just have to do.

The fabric I used for the blocks were from a Persimmon fat quarter bundle by Basic Grey for Moda and the background fabric is a Moda Cross Weave in Aqua. Β If you look closely you in some of the photos, you can tell that I obviously didn’t pay attention while piecing to which side of the cross weave was front and back.Β  And I actually love the result because it gives the background a bit of movement with the different sheen/texture across the entire quilt.

Although the quilting took me A LOT of time with all of the stops and starts, it was so worth it in the end.

One of my favorite little details is on the side borders where my quilting lines cross over to create a fun little cross-hatch triangle.Β  I used Aurifil 50 wt. 5007 (grey blue) and think it looks perfect with the background fabric.

Here is a better shot of the entire quilt before I had the binding on (and before winter struck my neck of the woods!)Β  This one really shows the movement in the background due to changing fabric direction.

And this is probably my favorite of all the photos…

I couldn’t be any more in love with it and decided that Camille chose the perfect name in Swoon πŸ™‚

  1. LovE this quilt, fabric colours are perfect! Quilting is great. Love the little bit of cross hatching and the cute little square at the points between the swoon blocks. Quilt just delightful!

  2. Your Swoon is lovely and the quilting is impressive. I have made three blocks of mine and am already contemplating the quilting! I am debating whether to do each block QAYG or send it out. I don’t think I am ready to quilt an entire top that big.

  3. It’s lovely! I agree the detail with the quilting where it shifts from a point to crossing over if a wonderful elegant detail. That cross weave fabric is interesting, it’s so neat how subtle differences in how you used it do create a patchwork movement in the background. So wonderful.

  4. He there Amanda,
    I am totally crushing on your Swoon and especially on the quilting. Could you please tell me how you managed to get your lines so nice and straight and even? Did you use painter’s tape?
    Thanks,
