Good Morning! I almost finished up my first quilt this year. I am behind! This was a selection of fabrics I found at a quilt shop in San Antonio, TX called Las Colchas (www.lascolchas.com). A very cute quilt shop if you ever make it down there.
I used 2 layers of batting: Dream Cotton select on the bottom and Dream wool on the top. One of my favorite combos. The fabrics are 100% linen. Piecing the chevron was easy because you did it on top of muslin but the hot pink linen was very stretchy and wrinkly. I was really worried when I loaded it. I will say though - it quilted up like a dream. I squared the whole quilt up after I got it off the frame. I used a hot pink thread one shade lighter than the background fabric to give it a little depth. I used one of my extra wide backing fabrics in a dark purple - love!
The design is by Anita Shackelford (www.anitashackelford.com) called Modern Eccentric. What do you think? I already know my sister is going to be calling me asking for this quilt!!! She may have to fight my girls though - the quilt is pink and purple. HeeHee!
Have a great day!
