I have finally finished my swoon quilt. I took my time at the end because I really loved working on this quilt and I didn't want to rush anything.
I think that white would have made a great background, but I am glad that I went with the darker color because I intend for this quilt to get a lot of use and my kids aren't very good at keeping white things white!
I couldn't decide if I should use the plaid or the blue print for the back, so I used both with a strip of quilter's linen in between.
The only thing that I didn't love about the process was the flying geese. I ended up using the Fons and Porter flying geese ruler and I probably wouldn't do that again because I ended up with a lot of clipped points (though I am sure that was totally my fault). Other than that everything lined up pretty well.
