I have now seen several variations of large scale traditional blocks in modern colors... and I finally decided to try one. This quilt top consists of four large squares which are made up of several smaller blocks. I also decided to quilt as a went. I now just have to put the backing on and add the binding. It's not my favorite quilt because of the coloring... but I enjoyed taking a traditional block and using it on a large scale.

Finally after weeks of inactivity I was able to finish this colorful baby quilt. I chose to create this pattern after being inspired by a graphic design that had a similar chevron look. I hope to try this with less colors to perfect the look. The fabric that I did use was from Robert Kaufman. I used a clear thread for the quilting.
UPDATE: This Pattern is now available for purchase.

Recently, a friend of mine had introduced me to the amazing little binding clips. The clips are used to hold down the binding while you hand sew the binding in place. With in ten minutes I was able to clip the binding around an entire quilt. It was much easier than pinning (and less painful). Thank you to whoever invented these!
