zoe's quilt

Zoe's entry.
Zoe's quilt progress. Making half square triangles.
Zoe's original inspiration came from Christa's Charming Chevrons.
Christa's Charming Chevrons quilt.
Zoe used 5" squares to make the half square triangles. As she was putting the half square triangle units together Zoe decided to change the layout.

I didn't have use of my sewing machine for some time, as I allowed Zoe to have preference. This was usually in the evening before going to bed (and after homework and other responsibilities were completed). As per the rules of the competition, the quilt had to be sewn entirely by Zoe. It took quite a while!
I think I was as excited as Zoe was when it was time for the binding to be sewn on.
 Nearly there!
 Zoe machine quilted this quilt using a walking foot. She left the white areas unquilted. The coloured chevrons were quilted in lines that were randomly spaced.
I am very proud of her persistence. And willingness to unpick stitches when needed.
The back.
 Unlike her mother, Zoe remembered to label her quilt.
  Zoe is already planning her next quilt!
