The Chevron Quilt is done and loved!
The half square triangles started out as 10″ squares, which I sewed in pairs. Both fabrics for the top were from KickAss County Store, the backing is an Ikea duvet cover piece, and the binding is Painters Canvas by Laura Gunn. I learned a ton by making this quilt, which is pretty much just my second one!
I hand pieced and hand quilted the whole thing, which I’m quite proud of. The points don’t perfectly match, there are some creases in the backing, and there were a few spots in the binding that needed attention after washing, but overall I’m very happy with it! It’s been on the bed for awhile already. I didn’t grow up with quilts, mostly comforters and duvets, so the feel of a quilt is a revelation. It’s light yet warm, thin but nicely dense and weighty. I love it.
We were on vacation this past week, and took a little road trip up to St Jacobs. The weather was lovely, and I ended up with a few souvenirs – this Comma jelly roll and Clover Hera marker from Reichard’s quilt shop, and some lovely String Theory sock yarn from Shall We Knit? in Waterloo. Thanks ladies!
