Chamomile QAL- finale!

Hello! Welcome to the grande finale of the Chamomile Quilt Along! After all the drama of sickness and more sickness and broken machines, I was able to finish my top thanks so a sweet neighbor and my husband. Bless them both. I love how it turned out!

I wan't sure how much the gray sashing was going to show up, or if the cornerstones would overpower the blocks, but I am pleased with how it all balanced out in the end. This is definitely the lightest, airiest quilt I've ever made. I used Riley Blake white (a bright white, if you remember the background fabric post), Kona Silver for sashing, and various colored scraps for cornerstones from many different manufacturers.

Now how to quilt it!? I'm sending it to Emilee at Paisley, Prints, and Polka Dots for sure, just need to pick a design. You can see her pantographs here. Don't forget she is offering 20% off all Chamomile quilts she receives before June 15th!

I'm most excited about the backing I have for this one, can't wait to show you. Until then, let's announce the winner! The winner of $75 dollar quilting credit from Heather Alexander Quilting is @kimradair!! I love the sashing she used. Also go check out the drama of her 2-year old drawing on her quilt top with Sharpie the morning after she finished it! Yikes! Oh toddlers.

If you are late to the party you can purchase a PDF or paper copy of the Chamomile pattern here. It's fun and easy.

Thank you all for participating and for your understanding as I wasn't as involved in this one as I would have liked. You're very patient and kind! Be sure to check out all the lovely tops everyone made at #chamomileqal on Instagram.

Next up for quilt alongs in these parts will be Rise, staring in June. I'll have more details, and paper patterns for sale, very soon. It's a fun one! You can check out #risequilt to start getting ideas. See you then!
