Blogger's Quilt Festival!

If you haven't visited the Blogger's Quilt Festival, you are missing out!  It is full of inspiration, talent, and beautiful quilts!

I've decided to take a chance and enter a quilt into the Modern Quilts category even though I've only been quilting for about a year.  It's a little intimidating when you see some of the quilters on the site but it's all about putting yourself out there! Right!?!?!

Without further ado, here is my Tula Pink Chevron Quilt:

This is the first quilt I've ever completed! It was also the first time I've ever used a long arm to quilt.  I did an all over pattern with a wave shape here and there to keep with the nautical theme of the fabrics.

I pieced the binding from left over Tula Pink and the back is a combination of Tula Pink and Sketch Fabric from Timeless Treasure.

Now it sits on the couch waiting for guests to snuggle up!

I was inspired by this tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Thanks for checking out my chevrons!

Wishing you big waves and an artful day!


  1. Dropped by from BQF, love the different tones you've used for each colour creating a 3D effect in the chevrons. What a great first quilt :D

  2. Thanks ChrissieD! It was fun to make and a great learning experience! Glad you stopped by! ~Chelsey

  3. Very cool! Sharp and clean. And I completely want to steal your couch. :-)

    1. Thanks CitricSugar! It was definitely fun to make! And while I won't give you my couch, I will tell you that I bought it at IKEA! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. We have the same couch! But mine is orange. I like the chevrons, and the mix of fabrics, they look great against the white fabric. Very cool!

    1. Thanks Kate! Isn't the saying "Great minds decorate alike"?
