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!
Size – 63″ x 72″
Number of blocks – 224 HSTs
Time to make – I lost track! I think the quilting took about 3-4 hours.
Fabric – Charm packs of Hello Chevron by BasicGrey. Plus some solids I’ve forgotten- I think they are Klonas from the feel.
Backing Fabric – Three different things that I don’t know- rubbish aren’t I?!
