Little(r) Scout

I’m so thankful to Cindy who pieced this quilt and tested the pattern for me.  Then she so kindly sent me back the top….my husband basted it (oh yes he did!) and I quilted and bound it while my kids visited their Grandparents.
I quilted it with all over loopty-loops (surprise,surprise).
I’m really happy how it turned out…these aren’t my normal colors but that purple and orange is such a fun combo.
Thank you again Cindy for making the top at the last second!

    I really love the colors along with the gray and white. The gray really pulls it all together.

    Hi – love the quilt, I recognize the binding as Denyse Schmidt's, love her fabrics! You always do such amazing work! The colors you choose are so vibrant, bright, and cheery. But I have to ask…have you ever sprayed basted with adhesive quilt spray? It's SO much easier than safety pins and will save you a TON of time. Once I started using the spray i never went back. My favorite is 505 Spray and Fix (won't gum your machine or needle). I layer the backing (tape corners down to floor), batting, and top and then I pull back half of the quilt and spray 1/2 at a time. Just a little tip ;) Happy Sewing!

    So cute! I've been eyeballing a few chevron inspired patterns lately. I want to make my (almost) three boys matching quilts and this type of pattern seems the most boy-friendly while still being able to use a variety of fabrics! And suggestions on a good fabric line for boys? Any color would be great!

    Lovely lovely quilt. What an amzing husband to crawl around on his hands and knees basting for you. You must be one awesome Hubbie trainer! What is your secret – I just mentioned it to my hubbie and he laughed at me!

    Wow! Hubby really did it? Cool! I knew he would, eventually! I enjoyed meeting both of you at Market!

    Love the colors.I agree with the previous comment – you'll have to give us your secret for training the hubby.

    Gorgeous colours, and good training on the husband! I'm training the 9year up on the next one…lots of bribes needed I think.
