Scrappy Swell Quilt : A Finished Quilt
March's CEO Club project for me was to complete my brother and sister-in-law's wedding quilt. With two kiddos and I had another wedding quilt prior to theirs, I just didn't get it finished before their wedding in September.
I LOVE the book Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley, so I had chosen the Swell quilt to make for them and at the beginning of the month I had a pile of strips and a practice block pieced.
For the quilting I tried to keep it simple with some straight on the diagonal lines through the center portion of the quilt. Then just straight lines for the borders.
Pattern: Swell from Simply Retro
Dimensions: 63 inches x 72 inches
Quilting: Diagonal and Straight line quilting
Fabric: various nautical themed prints, Michigan State prints, Detroit sports team prints, and blenders from my stash
