I am declaring my June goal publicly πŸ™‚

Here is a quilt I started end of April. May was more or less a long vacation month, not just in terms of quilting but kid’s summer vacation…exotic location..2 weeks off kind of vacation!
Almost little or no sewing happened during the month.

This is where my chevron quilt was left a month back and this is where I pick up the threads from…literally! I am trying a different technique of making a chevron quilt as against my favourite process of trying using HSTs.

Trying to learn new skills πŸ™‚

This quilt top is modeled after the Mod Chevron baby Quilt by Rashida Coleman Hale. Keeping to the tradition of adding a little ‘me’ into everything I do, the quilt top has been made using a layer cake of 10×10″ pieces. So each quilt block is achieved by joining the HSTs and measures around 9.5″ square.

The quilt is composed of 6×8 quilt blocks and would measure around 60×80 when completed.

What is really cool about the quilt top is that it uses fabric from my stash πŸ™‚ Not a single piece is bought from the store and I am really really happy about it.

Here the quilt top lies on my balcony railing. With the rain clouds on the horizon, its impossible to get a bright snap outside.

Last month I tried a chevron quit for the first time. Yes, You read it right…first time !!
It turned out fine and all the points quite matched up…

I have now renewed energy to make another one, slightly differently laid HSTs, but then a chevron quilt once again:) Its based on the free tutorial by Rashida Coleman Hale’s Mod Chevron baby quilt, but as always, I have to add a little bit of _me_ in the quilt. I am using a layer cake and assorted fabric from my stash:)

here is the set of layer cake and a coloured diagram of the quilt I intend to make…some triangles look smudgy as my little one coloured them in variegated crayons! That’s life with a little one at home who is enjoying his summer vacation with mom’s idea book and crayons πŸ™‚
