Swoon Sixteen Quilt

I never thought I would enjoy quilting, but here I am with a few quilts under my belt now. I got a fall fabric bundle from my friend Alli at Woodberry Way and took her suggestion to make a Swoon Sixteen quilt with it. I enjoyed making this SO much!

Here’s a link to the Swoon Sixteen pattern in case you’re interested in making one yourself. The quilt is 16 squares using 16 fat quarters, with each fabric being used once for each piece type. The way everything just flowed was magical, and I became obsessed with sewing the blocks together.

I didn’t know if I was going to like some of the color combos, but everything came together nicely in the end.

This was also my first time sending my quilt off to a longarmer. I used Sterling Quilt Co. and she did an amazing job. This was one of her monthly penny-ish specials, so the price was pretty reasonable too.

I used Kona Snow for the background and Kona Shell for the sashing. The fabric I chose for the binding was also one that was in Alli’s bundle, but I bought more for it. I love a bias stripe for binding. It looks so cute next to the floral backing.

I’m so happy to be able to share my finished Swoon Sixteen quilt with you today. I’m also already planning my next quilt and am taking a class for it at Garden of Quilts in Utah next month. Looking forward to that for sure! Anyone else going?

Now comes my next problem… What does one do with all of these quilts? Haha! Guess I better find some family members who would appreciate them as gifts.

Nice pattern I’ll have to wait a good while before I have a granddaughter turning 16! Gives me plenty of time to get it made!!!!

Oh, making it for a 16 year old is such a great idea! I didn't even make that connection.
