Shelby's Chevron!

I was asked by a cute, cute girl that I've known since she was a baby if I would make her a quilt for her sign in book (quilt) for her wedding that took place on the 7th of June.  She had been searching on Pinterest and had found the perfect quilt.  A chevron would be the one and she wanted it in gray, coral and white which would be the colors of her wedding.    She came to the shop one afternoon and together we picked a great combination of fabrics.  I used 10" squares and made half square triangles.  A pretty quick quilt to put together. 
Amity Jones of Unhinged did the quilting on it.  The floral design in the coral stripe really makes it stand out.  She didn't quilt anything in the white because that is where the guests would be signing.  In the gray she did a simple zig zag design.

The backing was a coral and gray floral from Aneela Hooley from Moda.  The bias binding from the same line. 

So here is Shelby and I with her darling quilt.  I named it Shelby's Chevron.  And if your thinking wow that is to cute to sign, well your right.  She thought the same thing.  That afternoon they were going to go look for a sign in book for their guests to sign instead of the quilt.  I think she made the right decision.  Best wishes to the happy couple.  May all your dreams come true as you snuggle under your new quilt.  Love ya, I am so glad I have been a part of your life while growing up.
