Have you ever made a quilt you loved so much that you just couldn’t wait to gift it? This quilt is it! I made it with my neighbor and friend in mind and I could NOT wait to gift it. Literally minutes after finishing the binding and taking photos, I was texting her asking if she was home so I could go drop it off. It is so perfectly her. I have been WAITING for someone to design fabric that fits her personality and thankfully Gingham Farm by Jen Allyson is it!
The mix of florals, stripes, gingham, and cute blenders make this collection a wonderful treat to work with. I decided to use Cluck Cluck Sew’s Chain Reaction quilt pattern. I wanted to showcase the beautiful florals and I knew I needed a pattern that left them in a larger piece so they wouldn’t be chopped to bits.
I decided to hand quilt this using Perle Cotton #8 in 3 different coordinating colors. I love the softness this adds to a rather geometric pattern. Add in a beautiful Blossom backing and this quilt is just a beauty! Make sure to look for Gingham Farm coming to your favorite local quilt shop soon!
