The chevrons were a little tricky. The pattern called for piecing a whole lot of narrow strips...but when I saw this striped fabric, I knew I could save considerable time. It also provided a palette to round out the red, black, white and cream shades I had already selected. If I make this quilt again, I'd mix up the pieces so the left and right side of each chevron are not a mirror image of one another. Makes it more interesting.
This round of quilting may have to last me a while. The weather man says it should cool off soon - that means I'll need to work outside. Gotta make hay while the sun shines! :)
