One of the first posts from January 2017 was about Supernova Starburst, a quilt I took along to the coast when we were there with the family so Aaron could photograph it. He also photographed Svenimento, and in my blog post I stated that I would show that quilt the next week.
Turns out, all of 2017 has come and gone. And there has been no mention or Svenimento, along with several other quilts that have not been documented here. Hmmm...

Your may be curious about the name, since it is obviously the Swoon pattern by Thimbleblossoms. Using an English-Italian translator, Svenimento was what popped up. I'm not sure if there is a literal translation of the word "swoon" in Italian, but I like the sound of svenimento.
In 2006, Mark and I went on a Mediterranean quilting cruise. I came back from that cruise with two pieces of fabric, both purchased in a tiny shop in Sicily, just a meter of each because at that time the cost was $25/meter.
I decided that the center of each block would consistently be that beautiful Sicilian fabric, and I started pulling other fabrics from my stash.
I don't remember when I actually started making these blocks, but then they sat in a pile until finally I decided it was time to turn them into a quilt.
I know there are some other pictures of this quilt somewhere in the disaster that is my digital photos, another project for 2018. If and when I find them, I will update this post.
This fabric still makes me swoon, and brings back such happy memories.
