Scrappy and Super

I hope you aren't getting tired of all the Swoon - I know I'm not. After doing two one-block "mini" Swoons, a Swoon block for do.Good Stitches, and a full-size Swoon quilt, there was still one more Swoon I wanted to do before I put my pattern away.

Inspired first by Erin of two more seconds

then by Adrianne of Little Bluebell

and finally by Kate of Katie Mae Quilts who is stitching up Swoon blocks in all sorts of sizes(!).
see original post here

I just had to do it. My scrappy Autumn lap quilt, otherwise known as . . .

Scrappy Super Swoon

Made double-size, one big scrappy 48" block. Quilted with organic line quilting, first inspired by Jacquie of Tallgrass Prairie Studio (who has a great tutorial here).

I promise this will be it. {maybe}

Linking up with Celebrate Color and Finish it Up Friday.

You did it!! Scrappy Super Swoon is spectacular! What an awesome idea to super size the pattern. And I must say that I love all the orange in it!

Woo, a supersize Swoon! :) I've thought about a big one for a Christmas wall hanging. I think I'm sold. The fall colors look great!
