I didn't realize that there were so many different kinds of camo. So just to make sure I didnt choose the wrong camo design, I asked Sylvia to pick out the fabric that she wanted the quilt made from.
Jenny, from Missouri Star Quilt Co, had posted a tutorial for making a chevron quilt. I would like to say a big thank you to MSQC for all the great tutorials.
After setting my rows together, I hand basted the quilt without safety pins. I had found a tutorial on youtube from Sharon Shamber for basting without safety pins. This method of basting has really helped me since I started using it. The link for Hand Basting a Quilt by Sharon Shamber can be found here. And part 2 of Hand Basting a Quilt.
This way of Basting a quilt is so much easier on my old knees, and I don't have to worry about accidently hitting a safety pin when I am machine quilting.
Well I did get the quilt finished. Sylvia told me last night that her older daughter is in love with it and wants her own quilt. No matter what age we are, a soft cuddly quilt to snuggle into, seems to make us feel loved.
The finished quilt.
