    Chevron Quilt for daughter's birthday

    I so enjoy looking at all of your pictures, they are so inspiring! I made a yellow and gray chevron quilt for my daughter's 26th bday. To me it looks like Charlie Brown's shirt but she loves it. lol

    I used a tutorial on Missouri Star Quilt Company. It was 80 by 90 inches, and I quilted it on my 1956 Singer 201-2

    I like how it turned out. I never would have thought of doing chevrons that size, but it looks great.

    Well done. I can see all the points are perfect. It is wonderful when what you make is loved and appreciated. It looks great on the bed.
