Swooning…Not So Much

Here is my first attempt at making a Swoon block designed by Camille Roskelley.  The fabric is Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda.  I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew for right now.

My points look pretty good – for the most part.  A few need to be redone.  It’s the seam bulk that is making me crazy.  No amount of ironing seems to help.  I would normally try to press each seam in the opposite direction of its “partner” seam so they lay together smoothly.  That’s next to impossible with this pattern.  I’m not sure how you quilt over this kind of bulkiness.  Maybe I should try pressing everything open instead. Or maybe my old iron needs to be replaced.

I think I may take a break and work on a more cooperative project.
