It seems like every once in a while, there is a quilt that just comes out of nowhere and pushes everything else out of the way. For us, this is one of those quilts. Camille Roskelley, of Thimble Blossoms and Bonnie & Camille fame, is the designer of this pattern, called Swoon Sixteen. It’s a variation of her very popular Swoon quilt, with smaller blocks and three colors per block instead of two.
Every once in a while, Camille hosts a “Swoon along” on Instagram, and this was the time that we finally joined in the fun. For our quilt, we used a blue crossweave for the background (Moda’s Chambray color), with coordinating prints in light and dark neutrals, plus bursts of minty green.
Most of the prints are from Cotton+Steel or Art Gallery Fabrics, but there are also a few lone wolves thrown in there. We just love to mix and match with whatever works! The Farm Fun fabric line provided a fun and coordinating print for the backing, as seen below blowing in the winter winds.
We had a lot of fun sharing our progress photos on our Instagram account! Maybe you’ll join us? We share a lot of things there that never make it into a full blog post, and we would love to see you there. As much as we love designing our own patterns, sometimes it’s nice to make a quick quilt without having to do all the brain work, and this Swoon Sixteen ranks near the top of our favorite quilt finishes!
