chevron safari

friday finish goal:


My daughter-in-law just finished this darling chevron quilt.   The pink came in fat quarters, so she just cut her fabric in the best way to get the most amount of HST, using this tutorial.



She came over today to learn how to make a raggy binding.  We used 4 inch wide strips cut on the bias.



You can learn how to make a raggy binding from this post.  It gives a baby quilt some fun texture, and is much faster than a regular hand sewn binding.




She quilted on each of the sides of the seam on her regular sewing machine.



Look how cute the back turned out!  I'm so proud of her.  She's only been quilting a year or two, and she figured all this out on her own.


time for a give away!

I have some patterns to give away from Carrie Nelson @ Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.  I love to follow Carrie's blog, she's got a great dry sense of humor, and I can directly relate to her dog and elderly parent stories.  She's got some fantastic patterns and books out.  I've got 2 of her quilts currently in progress.


If you're interested in these patterns, leave me a comment telling me about your favorite pattern designer.

  9. My favourite books right now, and my fave designer too, I guess, are Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket books. I have all 3 and want to make most of the quilts in them. annesimonot@sasktel.net

  13. The quilt your daughter-in-law made is really pretty. And the fabric she chose for the back is such fun.

    I can't really say I have a favourite quilt designer. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

  14. Very cute quilt. I've never seen a raggy binding like that before. Thanks for sharing it. Current favorite quilt desigers for me are Bonnie Hunter and Kathleen Tracy. But I made my first Schnibbles quilt this month and am just becoming aquainted with those patterns. Would love to win one.

  16. Even though I follow your blog, I keep popping in from my favorite linky parties! I don't think I have a favorite pattern designer although I am fond of Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts and Amy Lyncher at Pile O' Fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  22. Whoop whoop for that adorable little quilt!! Your DIL did a great job!

    My favorite pattern designer is probably Amanda Jean Nyberg (Crazy Mom Quilts). She comes up with great easy patterns that look fabulous and work up quickly - a must for our quilt ministry!

  24. Fun!! That quilt is adorable...love the colors! I don't know if I could pick just one designer....love the Buggy Barn Crazy patterns, working on some cute Sweetwater patterns right now and I really like Camille Roskelley too. I have a few "Rosie" books, but really like those patterns too.
    Looking forward to seeing all your wedding goodies. We have one coming up in less than 3 months, so I can relate. I've been procrastinating!
