Product Description


If you have been wanting to try your hand at sewing one of the very popular modern type of quilt but you do not know where to begin or you are not even sure this style is for you? This book might just be the answer you are looking for. Camille Roskelley very cleverly bridges the traditional with the modern. She combines different color combinations and simple techniques such as half-square triangles and easy Flying Geese to create a bold sophisti- cated style. Classic block quilting takes on a new look with jumbo sizes, fresh prints and colors and secondary patterns created by color placement. Camille uses Pre cut Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs, Fat Quarters mixed with fabric from your stash to create her quilts. You will find a great description of all the precut fabrics packets, good basic quilting instructions and wonderful photos that will inspire you along the way. --The Applique Society Newsletter; August 2013 Although I have cobbled together several patchwork blankets, the world of classic quilting is new to me, and mighty intimidating it can seem. Upon opening this book, I could only gape in awe at the beautiful block quilts featured in Camille Roskelly's repertoire, hoping that perhaps I might one day master half-square triangles and Flying Geese too. Roskelly's particular skill is to bridge the gap between traditional techniques and modern designs, and she achieves this with flair in Simply Retro. Colour combinations I wouldn't have thought of for quilts - red, grey and white in a vintage design, for example - bring a freshness to clasic blocks, designs - such as houses - and large bold prints make for inspiring viewing. Although I am not sure there is much that is terribly simple about making quilts, the instructions did become clear to even a novice like me, once I actually started to work through each step, and there is a comprehensive section on finishing off, so maybe my quilt dreams will come true!-Mumtopia

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Quilts 10 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Camille Roskelly is the Queen of precision and simplicity. The only downside for me was that there is no pattern in the book for the Swoon quilt and you have to go and buy the pattern direct from her website or take a Crafty class, which is a shame as it adds cost to the project.
