21 neon chevron quilt.

5.18.2012

This neon chevron quilt has been finished for awhile, but for some reason I just couldn't get around to photographing it!  I finally took it outside today to get some pictures, just in time to participate in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

This quilt was inspired by the neon and chevron trends that have been so prevalent lately.  It's definitely bright and fun!

The focal point of this quilt is obviously the multi-colored chevron strip.  Basically I strip pieced together three solid strips, then cut them into squares and paired them with white to make half square triangles.  There was a lot of extra trimming to get the stripes to line up with the next part of the chevron that was not so fun and definitely not documented, so there won't ever be a pattern for this quilt, sorry!  Maybe someday I'll try again, but maybe not. :)

As you can see I echo quilted along the chevron panel to bring out the pattern even more, and the rest I just quilted in random straight lines.
 The back is just simple stripes, but the chevron quilting makes it a lot more fun!
The solids I used are Kona Medium Gray, Cactus, Cerise, Melon, and White.  It's bound in the Cerise as well.
 It is a larger baby quilt or small lap size, at 40" x 62".
 It folds up perfectly to show off the chevron!
This one is listed in my shop!
