Lisa's Chevron Quilt

First off I wanted to say thanks sooo much for all the input on my last post regarding my Urban Nine Patch dilemma!  Now I know I'm really confused! ;o)  I got great advice (spelled right this time) though and am leaning towards doing up two patterns. 

Again thanks so much for the advice, I wish I could thank each of you individually right now but my computer decided to freeze up on me today and I'm currently at my husbands work using his computer.  ;o(

On a better note,  I finished up this fun little Chevron Quilt for Lisa this morning! 




Love how this turned out!  Lot's of ruler work, but being small it didn't take to long, a couple of hours.  I used double warm and white batting, off white thread for the white area's and I matched the thread for the colored areas.

Holy cow, that is the most beautiful quilting I've ever seen, Jenny. I was impressed by this little quilt I'm putting the binding on right now, but the chevron quilt makes my heart race. Thanks for doing it so quickly and I couldn't ask for a more beautiful quilting job!

Beautiful quilting! Question for you - when you change colors do you change as you go, or do you do a run of all 1 color then roll and do the next color etc.

Stephanie said...

You and your quilting are so inspirational. I do a little long arm quilting myself and often find myself looking at your work for ideas. You are incredible!!! Thank you for sharing with us.

Sylvia said...

I can't believe it took you a couple of hours to make this! It would have taken me more than a few hours just to piece it, let alone quite it! Gorgeous quilt!

China Ali said...

STUNNING. it takes me days to even decide what, to do and I never finish. I'm new to quilting and if I can get one block to look like that I'd be, in heaven. You are amazing. Is there a chance you could make stencils of your quilting designs not pattern but mylar stencils so we folk can trace them on our quilts to follow? You did this to basic colors and chevron pattern. I'm really in awe of your work.

Joan Hudson said...

This is absolutely outstanding
