    Red Chevron

    These are nothing special, but thought I'd post them today. I've had some red fabric for a couple of years and finally decided that it was use it or sell it. Found some perfect white/red/pink/ fabric to match it with for a quilt. The outcome was a chevron quilt about 64" x 64". Turned out better than I thought it would so it's one I'll keep for myself for the time being....maybe someone will come along who wants it. Used some scraps to try a Granny Square and will turn it into a pillow or a wall hanging for a craft show this fall.Name:  100_2402.jpg

    very pretty! I love chevron quilts.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Love both designs you've chosen but am considering--I, too, have some red yardage pretty much like yours that has been in my stash too long. Am I figuring correctly, that your 1/2 sq triangles are finished at 4"? That's pretty small but your finished product is fantastic.

    illinois....I started with 5" blocks and drew the line down the middle on the backside. Sewed 1/2" on either side of that line. Before joining all the squares together the blocks measured 4 1/2", so yes, they finished off at 4 ". It gave me more seams than I wanted to press flat. Sometimes sacrifices are made. LOL

    Thank you for the confirmation. I've been looking for something that I can use that red fabric and this really caught my eye. Am ready for the next project and this might be just the one I'm looking to use. Off to see how much yardage is in that piece. Thanks again! (Did you mean 1/4" either side of that line?)
