Swell Quilt

















































































































The house has been very quiet since the kids left for college.  It has given me a lot of time to sew and my machine has barely stopped humming since they left.  This quilt is "Swell" from Camille Roskelleys book, "Simply Retro" and hands down is one of my very favorites.  I used as many different small florals as I could find in my stash and a lot of that included Old-New 30's, Flower Sugar, Antique Flower Collection and many more.  I used a vintage sheet for the backing and left the border off for a more vintage feel.  This one I quilted myself and was very pleased with how it turned out.  Have a good weekend, friends!

Blessings,

  1. Just gorgeous! Flower Sugar is one of my favorite lines, I have some and have to force myself to cut into it, does that make me a hoarder? The quilting looks beautiful too. An absolutely lovely quilt Renee!
