The most exciting thing was that I had no idea what fabric they were going to send me. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't hoping for the Far Far Away reprint, but when I opened the package I found prints from French Bull's collections African Surf and Mosaica.
I was a little nervous because they sent a pretty limited amount of fabric so there was no room for mistakes and I couldn't really change my mind if I didn't like my first attempt.
I ended up using my own striped chevrons tutorial but I changed the number of strips, the width and height, and the angle that I cut the strips, ha ha. I have a hard time doing the same thing the same way.
Then I took a flower from 3 different colorways of the same print and appliquéd them onto the front of the quilt. I finished it off with the striped binding.
Overall I am pretty happy with how it turned out. But I think the really exciting thing about participating in something like this is seeing what other people make, so I can't wait to see the Quilt Market photos of the Windham booth.
