Swoon Quilt Completed

Early last fall (September 2016) I finished up the Swoon Quilt in a big hurry because I had ordered a new long arm. The new long arm would be too narrow to load the 115″ x 115″ Swoon Quilt, so I had to finish it up quickly. I decided to use a pantograph instead of custom quilting to make things move along a lot faster.
Some of the blocks after quilting:

You can see how big the quilt was by how it draped over the edges of my old 8′ x 8′ cutting table!

I included four extra blocks in the backing fabric to make it large enough:

To photograph the whole quilt I had to fold it into fourths.

  1. Just lovely. I am putting the binding on my Swoon right now and hope to have it done this evening. I didn’t make mine larger like you, but I give you credit for a beautiful quilt. The quilting is great, too. Enjoy.
