Am I Swoon-worthy?

Ok, I.am.weak...  I withstood the allure and pull of Camille Roskelley's Swoon pattern for about 6 months or so.  I first saw it this summer on a Moda blog hop when I first encountered her blog. http://www.camilleroskelley.typepad.com/
And I said, ooh I like the Ruby line and love that pattern.  But I resisted.  Enter in Flickr's Swoon-along http://www.imagingermonkey.blogspot.com/2012/01/shall-we-swoon.html and I caved this weekend.  Much later than the 500 + souls on there but caved nonetheless! Looking at all the gorgeous blocks posted there is so inspiring!  Love some of these ladies color choices!!  
Above you see my Swoon test block.  I am planning a full-Swoonfest with Robert Kaufman's new Concerto black and gold batiks...when they get here...I downloaded the pdf pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop fatquartershop.com but you can get it from Roskelley's site as well. 
If you've been under the same rock as me and been resisting...  This pattern goes together easily and the block is huge...24".
I think I may turn the above block into a baby quilt or use it as part of the back for the BOM Promises and Borders from elefantz.com as I am using these Robyn Pandolph fabrics for that, as well.
So now, let's see how long it takes me to get her new pattern, Vintage Holiday which looks like a "must-do" also!

Wow! That is a spectacular block. Checked out the Flickr's Swoon-along. Understand how you caved to it's allure.
