WIP Wednesday: AMH True Colors Chevron Quilt Top

I had a busy month of March. I finished this quilt top on March 9. I went to work on March 10 to find out that the company was doing a round of layoffs and my position was affected. So the last few weeks of the month were spent submitting my resume, interviewing for jobs, working on house projects, and not spending enough time sewing. I was blessed to get a new job just over two weeks later, and I started working again this week. So, the WIP I have going on right now is this quilt top.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I used Anna Maria Horner's True Colors line (two fat eighth bundles) that I picked up from Amanda's shop. I then pulled out my parallelogram die for my Accuquilt Go Baby fabric cutter, but you can easily cut this shape with your ruler and rotary cutter. I then pieced the parallelograms into this chevron design and used the leftover fabric to make half square triangles (HSTs) to use in the side borders.

I've since pieced the backing, basted the quilt, and started quilting it. I hope to finish it up soon so it can get some use at my house before mother nature turns up the heat.
