Of course, it was a Christmas Eve finish. (Don't we all work better under pressure?)
A black and white chevron. The construction is 6" finished half square triangle. I used five or six different blacks and scrappied them up.
I love a big, ole' fat binding...
One thing I love about the long arm quilter is that the quilt basting on the top and sides makes for a full, fat binding. I love the way the binding rolls to the back and puffs up. And, yes, the backing is a red print... hoping for a Georgia Bulldawg when dear granddaughter heads to college.
The quilting was puffy clouds in a black and white variegated thread. Black thread is weaker than white thread due to the amount of dyeing required to get it black. I had more than my share of thread breaks and challenges with this thread, but it is lovely on the quilt.
I love the quilt. I may make another one for me!
