Pom Pom de Paris Reversible Quilt

First, Barbara Brackman's CW #11:

A few months ago, I won French General's Pom Pom de Paris Jelly Roll Giveaway!
You know I was thrilled. The fabrics are just adorable.
What should I do with a jelly roll? I decided to go for a very humble Country French look and to divide the strips into two color groups and do a reversible chevron pattern on front and back sides of a quilt. The dark background is Marcus Aged Muslin. Here it is pre-borders:

Here it is all quilted by Cheri Gilleland:
I love this quilt. I wanted it to look like some ancient homespun quilt from an ancient French manse of some sort (you know, ancient :-) .



and the reverse is lighter and delicate for a nice change. I just can't wait to get the binding on:

I picked up two other quilts from Cheri yesterday and am going to go trim them now. Cheri's longarm work is wonderful; I highly recommend her to you!

I love that! I have that jelly roll too, though I had to pay for mine! lol
Congrats on your winning this beautiful fabric:)

Brenda said...

lovely. I especially like the muslin side.

Libby said...

*sigh* your reversible quilt is like a dream! I love both sides . . . but that aged muslin really calls my name. Do you have a way to display it both sides at once?

Gretchen said...

Lovely reversible quilt!! I don't know which side I like better--I think I like them both the same. Great CW block as always:)

Your CW block is lovely! I haven't seen this line of fabric. How great to get your quilts back! I love the dark muslin, but what a nice change to be able to reverse it.

Inventive! Lovely! And reversible too. You have such a creative mind. That dark muslin is such a bold choice, and I think it's perfect.

Nice CW block, it's fun to see how everyone is doing them.
Your new quilt is great and the quilting pretty

I like the way the strips of fabric are on a angle. What a good way to showcase some beautiful fabrics.
