Swell

Nearly 6 months ago I decided to make Camille Roskelley's (Thimble Blossoms) "Swell" from her book Simply Retro out of a batik jelly roll I had.  The colours are very pretty and I had a few jelly roll strips left over from the two Goodnight Irene quilts, so I added those in to make this quilt a bit larger.


Karen had a fantastic blue/green/turquoise batik fabric in stock that worked very well as border, binding and backing.



I love the frilly spiral quilting Karen did.  I'll definitely be choosing that pattern again.


The Wish Quilt is almost finished.  It was started in 2008. 

 
I stitched the reindeer antlers last night


and I found some Christmas buttons in my stash to sew onto the stars.


There has also been a little secret sewing happening to get ready for Quilt Camp at the end of October.
