Description

I received a yard of the Aqua Hydrangea print from the Bluebird Park collection for Mother's Day, and have enjoyed pulling pieces from stash to go with it. The Swell pattern from Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley seemed just right for it - using the original print for the border and stash for blocks. I had to buy a panel to get enough hydrangeas for the border, and ended up with all the fun small pieces as well.
July 14, 2014: Finally (after seeing it stacked in the corner for weeks) I couldn't resist trying it out, so put together two blocks out of the twenty needed.
Sept 9: top finished

Swell was one of my first quilts I did. Love your fabric choices. Can't wait to see this one finished.

Really great fabric for this design, Karen! Its funny - I made a Swell quilt top using a home made jelly roll ... and just pinned it last week so hopefully will get mine quilted up soon! Can't wait to see yours all done :)

Caribousmom

Stunning, Karen! Love the soft feel and gorgeous colors!

Readerowl

Caribousmom Thanks! The colors are a bit softer in indoor light. This one got replaced on the design wall by pieces of the Birch Farm collection - and I couldn't believe how similar the colors are. I must really like the combination!
