Tailored Swell Quilt

Well this is where my slight OCD tendancies really came out!

I have loved seeing everyone’s swell quilt (by Camille Roskelly in her book Simply Retro) in various scrappy fabric ranges and I wanted to make one of my own.

I received Strawberry Fields Revisited and fell in love with the Figtree Quilts fabric!! Even the brown tones!!

So I cut up my fabric and started laying it out…. and I HATED it scrappy. It looked like a dog’s breakfast. Actually like the breakfast the dog ate and then threw up.

So…..I ‘tailored’ it – nicely put together so it made nice crosses out of the same fabric and I loved it!

It is supposed to be for a new baby….but…. I am hoping the mum picks the other quilt so I can keep this one!! 🙂 And I have JUST the label for the backing 🙂
