Giant Chevron Quilt and a GIVEAWAY!

**Giveaway now closed**


I showed you this lovely stack of fabric a while ago and now it has become this...


A Giant Chevron Quilt using the fantastic new pattern by Jess at The Eleven Garden

I used rainbow colours from my stash and a range of low volume prints.


I did straight line quilting with Aurifil 50wt 2610, a nice light grey. For the backing I used a lilac vintage sheet.



The binding is a great print from Modern Yardage, the fabric is so soft and easy to work with.


This quilt is a gift for a friend, a check off my FAL list and one of my Making Christmas goals!
I was testing the lap quilt pattern so this is what it looked like at that size but I added extra rows to make it into a giant bed size quilt (my friend and her husband are both really tall!)


Luckily Jess has done all the hard work and the pattern includes three sizes: baby, lap and twin size. It also has a blank colouring page so you can plan your layout, very helpful!

The Giant Chevron Quilt pattern is available from Craftsy and Etsy.

Jess is kindly letting me give away 2 copies of the pattern to 2 lucky winners!
You each have two chances to win (please leave a separate comment for each entry):
