So to Swoon or Sparkle Punch? That is the question!
In case you have been hiding under a rock, it seems that blog world has exploded with the Swoon Quilt, by Thimble Blossoms. It's basically the carpenter's Block in a big size. http://thimbleblossoms.bigcartel.com/product/swoon-pattern-142-pdf-pattern
It's gorgeous of course, and it seems that everyone is making one.
But I think I feel more pulled towards Sparkle Punch, by Elizabeth Hartman:
I actually bought Elizabeth's book "Modern Patchwork" (her blog is OhFranson.com), but it just didn't wow me. I don't like Quilting books where the first 30 pages are quilting basics. I think Sparkle Punch is a much better quilt than the others quilts in the books, it's too bad that it is not in the book. However, it is the cover quilt in Fons and Porter's July/August issues.
