I finished this quilt top at a retreat last month. It's comprised of skinny strips from my scrap pile.
It was so much fun assembling this, and surprisingly (or maybe not), my scrap pile has not lost elevation.
I find it strange that the second baby quilt I make for my first best friend (FBF) Jessica is this Chain + Link finish. You see, when Jessica had her first baby back in 2012, I made her a rail fence quilt.
It wasn't intentional, but it's fitting. As I was trying to decide what to make for Jessica this time, I remembered the test blocks I made for Elizabeth for the Chain + Link pattern, and knew they would be fun for this.
I used one of the Andover textured solids for the remainder of the quilt top. I love the looser weave and the color, especially.
It's backed with the new Figures big number print (love love!).
Jessica and I don't live in the same state anymore, but I hope her boys get lots of use out of these quilts.
A few months back, I had a quilt pattern published in Quilt Now.
This was such an exciting achievement for me, and I really have no excuse as to why I'm just now sharing it here.
It's a fun and bright nine-patch quilt, and I used some very favorite prints to make a scrappy, happy quilt.
I quilted it in a simple crosshatch, and used my top-three favorite Joel Dewberry herringbone in navy for the binding.
It's backed in other stash favorites; I just love a scrappy quilt back.
Have a lovely week, friends!
