Here’s my entry for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2012 hosted by Amy’s Creative Side. I call it my Chevron Picnic Quilt. I participated in the “In the Bag -Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge” earlier this year and this is my result!
All the fabric, except some white on white from my stash, is from my swap partner, Patti. I didn’t have a plan so I cut the fabric into 5″ squares and then made half square triangles using the June Tailor Perfect Half-Square, Quarter Square slotted ruler. Everyone was perfect! I’m a gadget person and I highly recommend this one!
After much shuffling, I decided on this layout.
Chevron quilts are fun! When you rotate them, you have a different quilt!
For this quilt, I played around with different quilting designs in each row. It’s become the quilting sampler in my studio.
In keeping with the theme, I “acquired” some truly ugly fabric from my stash for the backing! It’ll be perfect for a picnic – who cares if this gets a little dirty! I like how the quilting detail pops!
