I finished Jeni's Patchwork Chevron quilt pattern in three quick sewing sessions. This one was a fun and easy pattern to follow. Using pre-cuts really speeds things up. I had three charm packs of Reunion, so I added 36 squares of a variety of solids from the Pink Chalk Fabric charming solids club and used Kona Ash as the background fabric.
For some reason I had an issue with puckering and some of the fabrics stretching. The funny thing is I didn't starch the charms, but I did starch the solids and they are what stretched. Weird!
I am hoping the puckers will be forgiven when I quilt this.
But, with my luck, the quilting will exaggerate the puckers.
Has anyone had this problem?
This quilt goes on the pile marked "to be quilted".
I ordered a really cute green gingham that I am hoping will match the green in the Reunion fabrics.
If you want to know what the solids used are in this quilt, they are:
Free Spirit Designer Solids Sand Dune
Robert Kaufman Quilters Linen Ochre
Moda Bella Solids Summer Sky
Free Spirit Designer Solids True Red
Moda Cross Weave Green Orange
Moda Bella Solids American Blue
I have to say, I have never used the cross weaves before and they are yummy and great to work with.
