A Scrappy Swell Quilt

Swell.onswing020001I’ve been busy finishing up some quilts lately. I don’t know why I waited so long to get this low volume scrappy quilt bound and quilted because I really love it.

The Swell pattern is from Camille Roskelley’s latest book: Simply Retro…and it is a super easy quilt to make. It is Jelly Roll friendly and (obviously) scrap friendly.

Swell.Pattern0001I had a Jelly Roll that I created by cutting 2.5″ strips WOF from left over scraps. When I do this, I try to color coordinate the roll as best I can (so I have a couple other self-made Jelly Rolls that have different color schemes).  I decided to use this scrap happy roll of fabrics to make the Swell quilt.

The quilt finished at 58″ X 70″ – an oversized lap quilt.

Swell.Draped010001I used fabric that I snagged for $2 a yard for the border and backing – amazing! And even pieced left over batting to sandwich the quilt.

Swell.BackReveal0001The quilting is free-motion loopy curves:

Swell.QuiltingDetail010001I made a small label just so I would remember when I made this one:

Swell.Label0001I really love the softness of this sweet quilt – and it is perfect for summer.
