I am officially on vacation...we are everyday at the beach swimming, drinking coffee...
The strange thing is that everyday I wake up at 6.30 in the morning, and because everybody is sleeping, I am relaxed enough, to work on my swoon.
It is my first attempt to make a swoon quilt, and oh boy!!... it is a huge quilt! I have no idea how the f...k am I going to quilt this thing in my small little Pfaff...I am seriously thinking of sending it to professional (But I have to find someone in Europe...if anybody knows please message me!!!)

Zafira Vaxevanidou

I'm Zafira and I live in Greece. I love quilting and Geek & Sundry. Recently I opened a new YouTube Channel called The Quilt Codex, and it's aim is to make 2000 quilt block tutorials! Visit us!


  1. Wow! This is stunning with the dark background. Love it!

    Hi Zafeiro! What a gorgeous quilt! I love the blue background fabric in particular. It makes the other colours pop! :-) I am a longarm quilter in Geneva (Switzerland) and would be honoured to quilt such a beautiful quilt. I will send you an email with my details. Well done!!

  3. Such wonderful colors. I love the solid color particularly! And I'm obsessed with the swoon block, although I haven't braved it yet! Great work!

  4. beautiful work on the Swoon a long! I really like the blue background you have. Enjoy your vacation time!

    I am stopping by from the WIP hop, my post is here if you have time to stop by :)

  5. Fabulous Swoon. Love the colour and fabric choices. This is going to be a beautiful quilt.

  6. Oh, I've never met a swoon quilt I didn't like. Hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation. I like sewing in those wee morning hours too!

  7. Beautiful quilt! I'm working on my UFO's this summer too. Making room for more fabric!

  8. Stunning colors! This is just lovely.

  9. I've just made my first block and like you have come to the conclusion this has got to go to a longarmer. I'm in Ireland and don't know any yet either but I've got 8 blocks more to go before I have to worry about it. Looks great!

  10. Your quilt blocks are absolutely gorgeous, I LOVE the colours!!

  11. I'm thinking of doing a Swoon with Amy Butler's Lark fabric line, and it was nice to see you using her fabric as well. Gorgeous, and love the blue solid.
