Valentine Swoon Quilt

My friend Lindsey over at Primrose Cottage Quilts is talented in so many ways–she’s a quilter, blogger, and pattern designer, plus she runs a long-arm quilting business with her mom! She recently quilted my Valentine Swoon quilt for me and I absolutely love it! This is the first time I’ve sent a quilt off to be quilted, so I felt totally spoiled. It was awesome to just magically have my quilt show up back at my house ready to be bound!

I chose the “Soho” design and the whole process was super simple using the Primrose Cottage online order form.

I made five 24″ Swoon quilt blocks last year and decided to only put four on the quilt top. I didn’t want the last one to feel left out, so I pieced it into the center of the back and am so glad I did! While I love how the front looks, the back is definitely my favorite!

I am so happy to have this quilt finished and I’m not sure that we’ll make it to next February before getting some snuggling time in with it! 🙂

  1. I love the quilting on your quilt. Plus I love the pattern too. I always have a quilt almost ready for a quilter. Now my Moda Blockheads quilt is done and working on setting my Triangle Gatherings by Lisa Bonegan

  2. I love the pattern, fabric choice, and the quilting on this quilt. I have a few quilt tops ready for machine quilting, I’m sure we all do. Thanks for such a great giveaway and a chance to view your work.

  3. Your quilt is beautiful! I have several quilts I could send her because I have tons of quilt tops in the waiting to be basted stage. I made a purple quilt out of scraps of fabric and it has tons of empty background so that that is probably the one I would send Lindsey. The quilting would really stand out.

  15. I don’t have a quilt top ready, but have so many on my “to do” list! I just ❤ the red/black/grey color combination! Your Valentine’s Day Swoon Quilt is beautiful! I think I need to paint the walls, get different flooring so I can use some quilts like that! 😉 Truly lovely!

  16. Love the Valentine Swoon Quilt! I am currently working on a Full Bloom pattern for my granddaughter using the Farmer’s Daughter fat quarter pack. It is turning out to be a little more challenging that the “ambitious beginner” instructions indicated. However, I am going forth and thinking of my sweet granddaughter with every cut and stitch I make. I would love to be considered for the long arm prize giveaway.

    I’ve never sent a quilt out for quilting! I have a couple tops hanging on my ladder that I’m unsure how to quilt so this would be amazing! Especially my Feed Company block of the month from forever ago 🙂

  19. I love the color choices and blocks that pair so well with the quilted top. I have a quilt in mind that would look better long armed than my own paralel lines of quilting. I’ll hold off binding it until the contest closes.

  22. I’ve always admired red, white and black projects…this one is stunning! I have a quilt top that’s been on my to-do list for 2 years. It’s a Postcard From Sweden top that I just adore, but have put it off because I’m afraid of messing it up!

  23. I love your Valentine Swoon quilt! I’ve got the pattern and fabric all ready or my swoon quilt, all in autumn colors. I just need the time, soon I hope. I do have a Bears Paw quilt I made to celebrate being cancer free, it’s been thirteen years and I haven’t quilted it or had it quilted yet. I’m still cancer free, yay! Thanks for showing your swoon it might give me the push I need to start mine.

  25. Kristina, I love your quilt. I have only sent one quilt out to be quilted and bound so I know the feeling you describe. The one I sent was an over size King size bed quilt started by grandmother. She loved red so she cut pieces from the three grandchildren’s clothes and added scraps leftover from her sewing and my dad’s sewing. All different shade of red. She hand piece about have the blocks then had to machined pieced some. When she passed I was given all her sewing things including this top. I finished the last two blocks saved the money and had it quilted. Every December 1 this quilt is put on my bed for the holidays. I would never been able to quilt this myself. It was just to big for me.
    Now I have a quilt I just finished and I am ready to quilt. And while I think I can quilt it, with everything else I have to deal with right now, like my husband’s medical issues and my 85 yr old mom who is closer to being 2 years old, time behind a sewing machine is a luxery. The quilt top I have finished is my interpretation of spreading your wings taking flight…and I plan to give it to my granddaughter who graduation high school May 2017.( Yes I am behind.) I found my Quilt style when I found Christa Watson’s blog about 4 or 5 years ago. She introduced me to Modern quilting . This quilt is made from her first fabric line call “Modern Marks” and the pattern is a mash up of several patterns and blocks I liked in other quilts so I did my thing and mixed it up.
    I love the pattern on your quilt and I want to try that design myself. For the top I finished I want to take motifs in the print and use them in the quilting. Sound fun.
