My mom (Grandma Jane) always seems to make the girls the perfect birthday presents and Savannah's 4th birthday was no exception. Mom told me she was working on something 'orange' for Miss S., but this lovely orange chevron quilt was a total surprise to everyone!
Mom was inspired by this quilt from Red Pepper Quilts. The unique design is created by the placement of half-square triangles. This would be a really great project for someone that is just getting into quilting. The design is beautiful, yet the piecing is quite straight forward. There are so many things you can do with half-square triangles. We'll be showing you some of the many uses in the coming weeks!
Grandma Jane purchased the Tangerine Tango Fat Quarter Bundle from our blog sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop, and added a few other orange prints that she had on hand. The white was cut from a bolt of white bella solid in 'snow'.
The back of the quilt is yardage from 'Fresh' by Deb Strain for Moda in Garden Lattice Orange.
This quilt is the perfect lap sized quilt. Savannah has definitely taught me that the color orange is truly wonderful. So happy and so fresh. I'm an orange convert, for sure!
Starting next week Grandma Jane will be sharing how to sew a quilt from start to finish with a free, original 'circle' quilt pattern she has created for The Cottage Home blog readers.
I'm so excited for her week long series and I hope you are too ~ it's going to be great!Pin It
