Fran of Cotton and Joy in one of my favorite quilty friends. When I found out she was working with Riley Blake Designs on her first fabric collection, I immediately started thinking about what I would make with them.
I initially planned on making a Desert Charm quilt, but then I wrote the Chevron Points pattern. The Modern Solids version of Chevron Points is perfect for showing off prints - and I really wanted to show off the prints!
For this baby quilt, I picked four of my favorite prints from the Daybreak collection plus one extra for the accent. The little bees are my favorite. I smile every time I see them!
I quilted my standard straight lines about 3/4" apart. This has become my go-to for when I have to quilt something myself. It's easy and quick.
Because I didn't use all of the prints I originally selected, I pieced them together for the backing. Making pieced backings is my new favorite obsession. It helps keeps the cost down since you aren't buying extra yardage for the back, it helps keep my fabric stash to a minimum since I don't like storing fabric, and it's just fun. :)
I went with my favorite binding option - stripes!
I really really love everything about this quilt. :)
