Swoon Block

Have you wondered what is a Swoon Block? Have you been seeing them all over the different blogs that you read? Do you see it on Pinterest? Do you have a Pinterest Board for this particular block?

So back in February of this year, Erika Mulvenna, from Miss Sews-it-all did a post over at the  BERNINA's We All Sew Blog did a fantastic post about Swoon. Erika was talking about Camille Roskelly’s newest quilt design Swoon, I needed to check out some of the Swoon inspiration she found! So here is her post (from BERNINA'a We All Sew Blogabout the Swoon pattern and where to get it.

Here is Camille’s version of Swoon from the Thimble Blossoms website – isn’t it pretty?
We’ve also found some beautiful Swoon quilt blocks popping up all over the web. Camille has shared a whole bushel of Swoon blocks at her blog, Simplify. This beautiful example of Swoon was made by Amanda from hey porkchop! 
We’re amazed at how many different varieties there are of the Swoon block, and you can check some of them out at the Swoon-along Flickr photo group:

To get your own downloadable Swoon quilt pattern for only $8, visit Camille Roskelly’s online store,Thimble Blossoms.
So, now that I have learned about the Swoon pattern I won't feel so silly questioning why it is called that...
