Hello Chevron … And A Giveaway Winner

Well it’s quilted, bound and finally photographed. Here is Hello Chevron in completed glory!

Three charm packs and a couple of years later, it’s all made up but I haven’t decided what to do with it yet, whether it will be a gift, if I’ll submit it to a magazine or put the pattern up on here.

It’s quilted all over with a double swirl with a variegated Aurifil which went better than expected. The bobbin kicked off though when I ran out of Cats Moon and used another thread I thought was similar….. rewound with Coats again and it worked fine!

The backing is a bit of an improv job using some fabrics I had large cuts of. The wadding was a bargain because it had holes in it, but not the bit I needed!

I even labelled it!

    I love zig zag quilts, my first quilt was a zig zag. This one is even more fun with the big V. I’m visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad.
