Chevron Baby Quilt No. 2

At long last, the second chevron baby quilt is finished for my friend Kathy's other grandson.  I delivered it this morning.

I'm really loving these colors together, turquoise and gray.  I incorporated a couple of the fabrics the mom had left over from decorating the baby's room and added a couple others to coordinate.

Once again, I used Crazy Mom's tutorial.  Quilted in an overall meander with Aurifil thread.  There's a glimpse of the gray/white chevron print backing as well.

The binding and a couple of the chevron rows are "Heath" by Alexander Henry in grey. So versatile, that stuff.

Also in process is the scrappy16-patch quilt top.  I made more blocks so it would be a comfortable size and am sewing them together now.

Here are all the blocks laid out on the floor earlier this week.  It's quite the riot, but I like it!

Whoop whoop! Two great quilts there, P.! I like "Quite The Riot" for the name of the second one, too!

These are fabulous! I was just trying to remember where the chevron tute was that I liked so- quilt mom, thanks! The turquoise and grey does look very nice together. You had nice light for your photo shoot, too!

Love the chevron & happy for the link, as LG has been begging for me to make her a chevron quilt. Fingers-crossed I can figure it out & actually finish it before Christmas! The colors you used are beautiful together. Very refreshing & calming...perfect for a new Momma. :)

Okay...your scrappy patches is fabulous! What an explosion of color. So much to look at, it makes me want to reach through the screen and touch every inch of it. That almost doesn't sound right, does it? ;)

Whoop-whoop and Happy Sewing!

The Chevron quilt is awesome! I just love those colours and the quilting is perfect. This is going to get a lot of love.

The 16 patch is an eye catcher for sure. Just my type of quilt. I love it!

You know, I was rather dubious about the white, grey, turquoise color scheme, but that quilt is just so fresh and pretty. Well done!

Love the riot of color in the 16 patch. In fact that's what I'd name it! What size are the blocks?
