My sweet and talented mother made this lovely quilt for my baby boy. Isn't it great? What I really love about the pattern she created is that it is completely made with half square triangles just like my herringbone quilts. She used the same technique I explain here to make her squares and then just arranged them in a different way. Her pattern is basically made up of four-square units that form an arrow shape:
These are then twisted to face opposite directions. My mom chose to quilt a quarter inch around the outside and inside of these arrows to form a diamond shape.
She started out with four inch squares that got down to little three inch squares after piecing the whole top.
She chose a tonal navy blue fabric for the backing (which matches the nursery) and used a wide yellow ric rac for the edging.
I just love it. What do you all think?
Linking up at some of my favorite parties.
