The pattern is called “Wildflower Chevron Quilt” from the Adornit girls. The applique shapes in that colorful column are supposed to be cute flowers but we didn’t think it went too well with the whole Dr. Seuss idea. I swapped in some simple shapes and let the fabrics do the rest of the work. Here’s a photo of the original quilt hanging at quilt market in the Adornit booth – cute, isn’t it?
The quilt shop I sewed this for needed the quilt to be just a bit narrower for display purposes so I removed the last column of chevrons and that did the trick.
For the quilting, I tried a new free motion quilting design that I found on Pinterest. (The original pin was a bad link but I did a Google image search and finally tracked down the original source of the pin – mystery solved!) The quilting idea came from here – and she has a lot of other great quilting ideas that I can’t wait to try.
I chose a green minky for the backing and a stripe for the binding. Once my boys saw the backing they began to discuss who gets to use the quilt first. I keep telling them it will be awhile before they see it again but it doesn’t matter. It gives them something to
argue about discuss, right?
Hope you have a fantastic Friday! I’m linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday. Go and check out what other talented quilters have done this week.
