Today's quilt is one I made just over a year ago for my grandniece T. I was inspired by this pattern from Anna at Six White Horses because of the sharp points and the crisp white in the narrow strips. I made a very long foundation paper pattern for the chevron parts.
The palette I was given for the nursery colors was Rainwashed paint by Sherwin Willliams, pencil yellow and cherry red. I shopped all of my local quilt shops and a few online stores to collect as many fabrics as I could in those colors. There's also a fabric on the back that I found at an antique mall (not antique fabric, though). I think I used Kona Snow for the white, as that is my go to for white when I don't want it to jump out too much. The back was pieced from leftovers and fabrics that didn't make the cut for the front.

Baby T turned 1 a few days ago. Time sure flies. She's cute as a button.
