Chevron quilt

It's finished! 
And while I will hastily try to draw your attention away from the imperfections that I know are there, I am really pleased with it.  They all add to the character of it!  But as I hand stitched the last bit of binding to the last edge I was left with one overwhelming feeling ...

... what can I do next?  I am super excited to be joining in with Fiona's Friendship Quilt and can't wait to get started on the first square.  Especially as someone had the brilliant idea of making two of each square, sending one on to its new owner and keeping one yourself to add to your own quilt.  I need to start looking around for some ideas and places to buy some new fabric.  Excuse me, I feel the need for some retail therapy.  I need to make an appointment with Mr Google and Sir YouTube ...

I loved the look of this quilt from the moment you started cutting the pieces. Beautiful and I agree that imperfections make it perfect.

It's absolutely beautiful!

I'm going to be communing with Mr Google too for the friendship quilt, but that'll be because I might have bitten off more than I can chew :)

That is so pretty! I used to do block swaps online 10 or so years ago. It resulted in a collection of many & varied things that I did make into a top finally but still have to actually sandwich & quilt.

I'm catching up on blog posts after a hectic couple of weeks and I have to say I LOVE this quilt! I've been wanting to learn to quilt for ages now, and this gorgeous chevron creation has just increased that desire! Well done x
