Modern Chevron Baby Quilt Finish

It always feels so good to have a finish on a quilt.

Modern Chevron Baby is now quilted, bound and washed for a special little boy.

Pattern and free tutorial by Kirsty of You Had Me At Bonjour
All of the blues and neutrals came from scraps in my stash.
A fun way to use up what you have kind of quilt.

I even followed Kirsty's suggestions of a straight line echo for the machine quilting.
Easy breezy.
Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can.

I'm pleased with how the stitching showed up on the pieced back, too.

The geometric lines really work well for a guy quilt.
Chevron Baby will be mailed off this week as a present for a special friend.
Welcome to this world little Bennett!

I love it. And the straight line quilting is perfect. I've become a fan of the straight line.

I do love the navy with the neutrals and the simple lines of this quilt.
