About the Author:

Growing up in a home brimming with creativity and quilts, it was only natural that Camille Roskelley started designing her own quilts and fabrics. She launched her pattern making business, Thimble Blossoms, in 2007. Visit her popular blog, Simplify, at camilleroskelley.com.

Review:


In Camille's words, this book starts with the idea of taking traditional blocks, updating them, upscaling them and giving them a twist. You'll love the way Camille has simplified the piecing to maximize chain piecing and minimize Y-seams.

(Australian Quilters Companion, July 2013)

Simply Retro with Camille Roskelley offers quilters new ideas on traditional quilting, exploring modern print combinations and showing how to use precuts, yardage and scraps to supersize blocks or create alternative block arrangements. From using simple half-square triangles to creating big sizes and unique pattern combinations, this is a fine collection of ideas for any who would do something different with traditional quilting approaches as a background. (The Needlecraft Shelf, 9/6/13)

Camille Roskelley's new book Simply Retro is filled with fun quilts made from classic blocks. All 11 projects are perfect for use with precuts, scraps, or yardage. Beautifully photographed with clear directions, this book is sure to become your new favorite! (McCall's Quick Quilts, October/November 2013)

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 sophisticated 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 Precut 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)
