Take Shape Chevron Baby Quilt and Scrap Giveaway

This month I used my Culcita Box fabrics to make a chevron baby quilt.  Like I mentioned, these fabrics are a little outside my comfort zone.  As a general rule for myself, I try not to buy fabrics that have a lot of contrast within them.  They are beautiful and some people do beautiful things with them, but I tend to have a hard time using them.

But despite being a little nervous about using them, I am so pleased with how the quilt turned out! I ended up omitting the pink circle fabric from the bundle because I wanted something with a little more orange to it, so I subbed in Kona Mango.  I also added a black Art Gallery triangle print that I had in my stash.

These are 60 degree chevrons and I quilted it with a random 60 degree grid.

I was happy to find this Katarina Roccella print in my stash for the backing and I used more of the black triangle print for the binding.  I stitched the binding down with Perle cotton.

This quilt is now listed in my Etsy shop.

Finished size: 33" x 47"
Fabric: Take Shape by Art Gallery Fabrics

  41. The contrasts are lovely! As a quilter of 40+ years, most of what I do now is scrappy, to use up scraps. But I still buy scraps and fat quarters to add a little extra to my scraps (and keep it fun for me while quilting). Thanks for the giveaway! Deb E / Oregon mdenders@msn.com
