I have finally finished my chevron quilt with 5 days to go before my best friends birthday. I hope she is pleased with it! After debating what to do for the backing I decided to give her a sneaky text asking what her favourite colour is. She said red or turquoise so I have included both in the finished item, I am hoping she hasn't put two and two together and realised why I was asking!
For the quilt top I used the back to black bundle from M is for Make. The backing and binding are Better Value Plain Cottons from Seamstar in Cyan and Red. These fabrics are extra wide and definitely good value for money.
I chose to keep the quilting fairly simple and sewed half an inch either side of the chevron. I bought a walking foot a few months back and this was the first time I have properly used it. I can't believe what a big difference it made, I don't know how I managed without it before!
This is only the second quilt that I have finished and it's certainly not perfect. Hopefully my friend won't be looking too closely at some of the wonky seams, after all it's the thought that counts, right?
