I have had this back for a several weeks and just haven't blogged about it. This is Erin's new quilt for her master bedroom. The pattern is Pancakes by Tula Pink
You can see the navy and cream in the triangle corners.
This quilt is either for a layer cake or fat quarters, so it easy to pick and choose fabrics. Two of her sisters helped her pick out several fat quarters and I told her to pick more than the recommended 12. The pattern finishes at 69 x 72 but Erin wanted it to fit the queen bed.
As I was making it, I asked Erin if it was okay if I eliminated a couple of fabrics and maybe added a few different ones. She was find with that. I took out a couple of solids and one that was just a bit flat in color.
I made it a bit too long but Erin has plenty for a nice turn down top and the back is a pretty navy chevron pattern. This looks great on the bed, so let's just call it a design feature! Don't you think.
I probably should of made the side borders 2" wider, the width of the quilt is just right not a bit too much on either side.
A close up of the quilting and the fabrics. On the right you see the outside border, which is made up of two polka dots.
You can see how big this quilt is, Meredith cannot even hold it all the way across. Erin loves her new quilt and her bedroom looks wonderful in a new color scheme.

This was a fun quilt to make, pretty time consuming with marking all the triangles to sew. I read this on Lori Holt's blog, Seams So Easy, which means no more marking squares for half-square triangles!
I need one of those.
