Roseville Album

Roseville by Kim Mclean arrived a month ago. I'm only just getting around to it now (the usual story).

It looks good. I can't wait to start. I have already pulled some stash fabric out to see if it will do. I think I might have to buy some new Fassett fabrics. It shares some design elements with The Civil War Bride Quilt (which is also on my UFO shelf) so I will have 2 similiar in style - but they are both beautiful in their own way. I think that if you see something you know you will love making and having, it has to find a home...somewhere in your studio...

Is anyone else making this quilt?

I will post updates as I go through making this quilt. I don't know when as I have a lot of my own to get through. But it can sit on my UFO shelf. I have hungry eyes!

This quilt can be purchased here:


  1. There are several quilters making it on the Glorious Applique blog.

  2. oh Esther it´s wonderful. I like it but it´s to expensive for me. I wish you fun

  6. I agree with you, Esther, it's a beautiful quilt. If you're going to make it (or any of Kim McLean's other lovely applique quilts) you would love this blog -
    You ought to join up! I follow this inspirational blog where many quilters are posting about their journeys as they stitch Kim's patterns. Kim herself posts from time to time as well. You would adore it!
