LOVE LOVE LOVE this one.
I had seen this pattern on Moda Bake Shop http://www.modabakeshop.com/2012/01/patchwork-chevron-quilt.html
and knew that I wanted to make it.
When I saw the material on Sister’s Quilters http://www.sistersandquilters.com/shop/Fat-Quarter-Bundles/p/Luxe-in-Bloom-Fat-Quarter-Bundle.htm
I knew that I had found my perfect quilt. It turned out even better than I had hoped.
The difference in what I did vs the pattern was that I didn’t use charm packs. I ordered 2 sets of fat quarters of the 7 different materials (so a half yard of each of the different 7 fabrics). I then cut the material to make the 5×5 squares (which is what charm packs are).
The quilt came together fairly quickly due to the blocks being large.
The trickiest part I thought would be the machine quilting. I have never quilted anything this large. 80×80. I found that if I used a simple stitch and just went down the material and only moved down rather going across a block I could do this much larger quilt without a problem.
Love my great quilt holder.
On to my next quilt – thinking it will be a reminder of our trip to Japan… stay tuned.
