Today's Trend - Swoon

Swoons, Swoons, everywhere! These generously-sized beauties keep cropping up wherever I look. It's no wonder. For those of us who keep collecting fat quarter bundles and appreciate the fact that the larger the block, the fewer of them you need to make, it's a great fit.

The pattern is here:

There's even a Quilt Along on Flickr here with over 1,200 members.

I love the fabrics selected by Melissa of Ms Midge.

Tula Pink's Salt Water collection is crush-worthy, so I can't resist the Swoon pictured on Everyday Fray.

Ah ha! I have made a discovery from the past thanks to the Little Miss Shabby blog. The swoon block is mighty similar to the historical Jewels in a Frame block here and the Star of Bethlehem blocks here and here.

There's even a Flickr group here.
