Swooning at the Ritz - Building Blocks Tuesday

That's right people!  I'm finally Swoon-ing!  I just love the part when you are pressing those final two seams and the whole block just comes together.

Swoon Block 1

Swoon Block 2

I altered the size of the blocks to 18 inches.  The smaller size allowed me to use an ancient Layer Cake I had of "Puttin' on the Ritz" by Bunny Hill.  I also mixed in a little "Lily and Will" from Bunny Hill too and added some Kona Snow.  So far they are all playing nicely together.

What have you been working on this week?  I want to know!  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.

Quilter in the Closet


1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading!



  1. I couldn't get the button to work right for some reason (probably operator error) but I did put a link back to you in the post :). I love the way your swoons are turning out. I'm almost finished with my HUGE scrappy Swoon. Maybe then I'll be up to tackling the other version!

  2. Love the swoons in these light colors so precious

  3. Lovely blocks Jen, have yet to fall for the Swoon block but I love them when I see them.

  4. Beautiful, love the fabrics. It is always nice to use something you have too, do bonus points for that.

  5. Beautiful - I love your colour palette! So muted and yet fresh at the same time....


I LOVE comments, they make my day! I may not always respond, but I DO read them...always.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
