Description

Gift for friends' baby boy. Approx 45" x 45" when completed. Mystery quilt designed by Fran Williams. Class taught by Jenny Bowker, 12 Jan 13 at Addicted 2 Fabric in Canberra. Great design with 1 focus fabric, 1 light, 1 medium, 1 dark. I also used navy plaid flannel shirting for the back.

Made half square triangles from the chevron off cuts. Used some to make a matching pillow. My first time installing a zipper. Used super helpful tutorial to guide me.

Quilted in the ditch and diagonally through nine patch blocks. Did FMQ piano keys in dark section of chevron block using Signature 40wt cotton in dark royal blue.

Had some issues with the binding being particularly wrinkly. May be the fabric (didn't pre-wash any in the quilt).

I really like the less traditional fabric in the large square with the traditional pattern. I spent 5 years as an expat in Saudi Arabia and got to spend a lot of time with new friends quilting.

What a cool pattern! I love the over lay effect. And the pillow is perfect. Nice job picking up on the aqua. Fun!!

beautiful pattern and the colors are so striking too! I think warm and snuggly when I see your quilt.
