After we put the top together, it was my job to quilt it and attach the binding to the front. I straight line quilted it by echoing the zig zag of the chevrons. I love the scrappy binding my friend made out of the pink fabrics! My favorite part of quilting is hand-sewing the binding to the back, and I'm really tempted to get started on it, but I promised my friend I would wait until we could do it
together. It's so hard to wait, though!
We found a fun Alice in Wonderland print by Robert Kaufman for the backing. It gives the modern quilt top a little bit of an old fashioned feeling. I'm excited to give the finished quilt to our co-worker!
Today is the last day of the Let's Get Acquainted/New Blogger Blog Hop. It has been so much fun and a great learning experience to check out all of the link ups throughout the summer. Thank you, Beth, at Plum and June for setting it all up! I'm going to link up over there, one last time.
Love the colours, the design, the backing and that you get to make a special quilt with a friend :)
oh, I love chevron quilts, too! haven't made one yet but really want to. :) That's a fun idea to make a quilt with a friend!
I just love chevrons and the white with the pink and gray really make the colors come alive! So pretty!
Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
