Finished True Colors Chevron Quilt

I finished my fourth quilt for the year! And it's the fourth month. I didn't think I'd have four finished quilts at this point in the year with how busy I've been with school. But, I'm happy that I've finished my two main quilt goals for the year. In a couple weeks the semester will be over and I'll be able to spend more time quilting, hopefully.

Here she is in all her colorful glory. I'm really pleased with how everything came together for this quilt.

For the backing, I pieced half yard cuts of some of the True Colors prints with yard cuts of two of Anna Maria Horner's Dowry prints.

I did a variety of quilting on this quilt with no real rhyme or reason. I changed designs when I felt like it.

I also initially planned to bind this quilt by hand so I cut the binding at 2.5 inches, which is smaller than my typical 3-inch binding. After attaching the binding to the front of the quilt though, I just wasn't feeling the hand-binding thing and ended up finishing it by machine.

And just because he's cute, here's an photo outtake of the mister. Love his guts.

I love the accent of the Squares on the sides and the off set of the chevrons. My accuquilt was delivered yesterday and today I am going to start figuring it all out... Ok maybe not figuring it All out. But at least get a an idea of where to start with it.

This is so pretty. I especially like how you offset the chevrons--it's a nice take on the whole concept.
