Last year I started collecting red, white and blue fabrics that had a nautical theme. I wanted to make a quilt for Chloe and meant to get it done last year. I didn't get to it until about a month ago, but finally decided on a perfectly normal chevron. There's not a liberated seam here at all! As it turns out, Chloe prefers non liberated quilts, including this one. She was surprised to find it on her bed when she was home last week.
After I made that one, I had some leftover fabric and cut up triangles, so I started another perfectly normal quilt! I know, so unlike me. However, I didn't have a lot invested in this one so it was easy to experiment with it. I decided to try a machine quilted spiral which came out pretty nice. Once you get started it is just around and around for 2-3 hours (including breaks). I really like how this came out.
