Chevron Picnic Quilt
Mission accomplished! The “ugly” fabric that I received from Patti in Canada is a quilt! All the fabric is from Patti, except a little bit of white for the blocks and the backing fabric. No fabric was purchased for this challenge, all stash fabric!
I love how it looks outside on the grass or picnic table. Each row is quilted with a different design to the middle and then mirrored. The thread is white and doesn’t show except on the green blocks! That’s okay, it adds texture and I love the white thread on the white fabric.
Turning the quilt gives it a different look, too!
See. the back is really the ugly fabric! I want to use this quilt so I did not want white backing fabric. Of course, I have to show you the back to reveal the quilting detail!
Now, I haven’t planted petunias in 2 or 3 years but in the middle of my yard, next to the tree stump is a volunteer petunia that started blooming this week. Not sure how it got there, some critter must have planted it for me!
