Design Wall Monday 7/19/10
I put the borders on my Christmas quilt last night and had it still on the design wall to admire it. Most quilts I make I like, after all they are my color and pattern choices but every once in awhile I make one that I just love and this is one of them. I guess it is partially because I love scrap quilts but also because something so simple can be set to make it look fancier.
I started with 5 inch squares and then made 120 1/2 square triangles. The only hard part was I had to lay it out totally on the design wall and keep it there as I pieced it so I wouldn't turn and pieces around.
I found the setting in a magazine and it is called converging chevrons.
I look forward to getting this one quilted but will have to wait till I get a backing made and a couple of customer quilts done first.
