I do love the Plus quilt, but was looking forward to a new pattern! And, if you can believe it, this is my first ever chevron quilt and it was always on my to do list. So I started of course making HSTs. I got to try out this new ruler, pretty sweet.
Having all the lines marked I was set for a day of sewing at my Guild's Sew In. My kit, ready to go.
I got then all trimmed up and the first part of the top done! Good sewing day! And GREAT company!
Today I wasted no time in finishing the top
Piecing a back and making some binding
And then of course, quilting and binding. Can I just say that my new Janome is what I always thought home quilting could be like. There is just so much room, the stitch is lovely, it's quiet and fast. I actually looked forward to quilting today. That almost NEVER happens!
And then we had a finished quilt! I love the colors that Chris chose for this class sample. They ended up so happy and sunny together. The perfect thing for a start of summer class.
|Didn't expect that Purple did ya? Me neither but it totally works!
Well, this was a fun little lovely to make. I wonder who will come and learn to make it with me?
