One slow afternoon when I was at work by myself, I had been staring at the Half Moon Moda fabrics long enough that this design floated into my head.
It's a 44" square baby quilt with mostly Half Moon Moda fabrics plus a Pezzy Print and the green vines from Peacock lane. It's a super simple design and the chevrons are really the star. I think the bright colors are great for baby boys or girls. My boss came up with the name "Chevron Pinwheel," which I like a lot. I was inspired by Kristin's starfish quilt for the quilting.
This is actually the first time I've pre-designed a quilt myself, like with math and everything. I've made up a few as I went along, but this feels a bit more official.
Here it is in the shop window. We made up 20 kits with all the fabrics required for the quilt top, although a few have sold. These chevrons are hard to find now, and although Riley Blake released a new line of chevrons with lots of great colors, I like the dramatic scale of these a bit more. We don't have an online store ready just yet, but if you are dying for one of these kits, we'll send you one. Find the phone number here.
I'm having a really hard time focusing on my Project Run and Play designs. This contest is already proving to be a bit of a creative and emotional roller coaster... and it's hasn't even started! Send me your good vibes to get a lot accomplished tonight. Or just send ritalin and chocolate.
