Chevrons


I used some 4.5 scraps this month to make HSTs and then made the HSTs into 16 inch chevron blocks.  I've been making these as an RSC project when I have had 4.5 scraps since August 2014.  


I assembled all of the rows so far into a quilt top.
I have orange/yellow, green, blue/indigo, violet rows. 
 I'm just missing the top row of red now and I'll have a flimsy 64 x 80. 

Got scraps?

So very colorful. I have to agree with the previous comment, it's hard not to add this quilt to the bucket list.

Oh, that is pretty! And such a good idea for those smaller pieces. I'm going to start keeping an eye out for pieces that are about 4.5 inch squares!

What a GREAT project -- one of the prettiest chevron quilt tops I've seen (it has rainbows and color blocks and HSTs and . . . )

There you go again, getting us all fired up with Quilt Envy! (Any bets on how many people are now eyeing their stashes, going 'hmmm...'?)
That quilt's going to be a stunner!

SCRAPS -- it has scraps (that was the last thing I wanted to include in my list of positives).

What an effective use of colour! Such a beautiful quilt. Another wish list project.

That is the prefect RSC challenge block! So simple, scrappy half square triangles and turn them into an absolutely gorgeous quilt! Great job! My list for 2017 is growing!

Karen said...

The perfect scrap pattern. It is a beautiful quilt.

Cathy said...

Lovely!! Basic and beautiful!

I love it, I love it, I love it!

I must try to make one of these next year.

I guess I am really a scrappy gal at heart.

A great way to use the HSTs and the whole rainbow looks terrific!

Do I have scraps? Haha if you ask my husband then the basement is a hoarders dream come true. I don't think it is that bad at all. I am trying to use them now to make blocks and quilts- so far I cannot say the piles get smaller. Must be some sort of quilting magic. Love the quilt and will tackle the HST soon. Wish me luck :-)

Hm, i think I need some low volume white fabric haha.

Angie said...

Great idea and I bet it truly busts some scraps!

I have to start another bin with 4.5 scraps so I can make me a gorgeous quilt like that too. Just love it. Great job! ;^)

Love this! A great block/pattern to teach my quilting newbies in our quilt ministry group.

Deb A said...

Hmmmm. What a great use for the extra triangles from the flying geese!
A great scrap busting quilt. Good job.

Don't those look great! Sometimes the simplest blocks can look the most effective with clever use of colour. Great job :)

I agree with Quiltdivajulie, this is one of the best chevron quilts I've seen!
