Ansley's Swell



So, a few months back I was feeling very meh about all of my projects and honestly, a little bogged down by sewing in general. Just totally uninspired. For days. I was getting a bit sick of it so I decided to start a baby quilt. I pulled a stack together and waited. Then, one of my closest friends growing up had a baby. Her third, and this time a sweet little girl named Ansley.


I decided that I really needed to get my act together so I fell back on a pattern I've made before, Swell by Camille Roskelley. I enlarged the pattern a bit so that the blocks ended up at 15" instead of 12". Nine blocks later I had a quilt top. Super easy!


We were headed to visit my parents the next week so I just decided to wait and quilt it at my mom's. I think I took three quilts but this is the only one I ended up getting quilted. I used this flowery swirl that is pretty fun to do. I finally got it mailed this week, only two months after the baby was born. That's not too bad, right?

  8. What a pretty quilt! You shouldn't feel bad about taking a break from sewing, though -- do whatever makes you happy! :)

  9. I wrote about losing my "sewjo" on my blog today. Maybe it's just summer? But what a fabulous quilt you've made! I love the brights and the design--perfect for a baby quilt. Enjoy the rest of summer--

  10. I love you version of this quilt so much! the colors are just beautiful!
    I'm getting ready to make my parents a queen size version of it, and I would like to enlarge my blocks as well so it has a better scale (And 36 blocks sounds soooooo much better than 64!!!) Do you mind sharing your quilt math or measurements for upsizing? Thanks so much!

  11. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
    you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
