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?

  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!

This painkiller is very effective in treating the acute pain that we mostly get from injuries. Soma pill works by blocking the ways of perceiving pain between the nerves and the brain. Carisoprodol is the generic version of this painkiller.

To enjoy the best effect of this medicine, use it with rest and proper treatment. You can get this painkiller from any medical store.
