rainbow chevron - finished!


Well, I've finished my rainbow chevron quilt. My sister-in-law Emily was here a few weeks ago and brought it back with her to quilt. I asked her for Denyse Shmidt loops (is there another name for this?) because that's my favorite and I can't do it at home (or I'm horrible at it at home.)


 I love everything about this quilt! It's one of my faves for sure. I originally got the idea for the back from Crazy Mom Quilts (this quilt). I didn't quite leave as much white as I wanted on the left side or the bottom, but it turned out great anyway.

Here's another good close up of the quilting. If you're looking for a good quilter Emily is very meticulous and is great at this pattern. (I think this is the 3rd quilt she's done for me with this pattern.) Go check her out at Emerson Quilting.


For the binding I used Alexander Henry Heath in gunmetal. I really love that Heath print - I wish it came in every color!


And there you have it - I do finish things sometimes :)


And don't forget that I've got a tutorial for this quilt here. Thanks for stopping by!
