Chevron Quilt

Several months ago I saw a Chevron Quilt on Pinterest (http://sizzixukblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/the-2-hour-quilt-top.html) and wanted to make my own ~ don't be fooled by the 2 hour title ~ it took me days longer than 2 hours.  I am slow with quilting but that gal must have had others doing her ironing & trimming & laying out the top ~ it took me quite a while.  However, I am loving the quilt ~ finished it yesterday!  Some of the edges aren't perfect ~ in fact a couple are really off!  But here are some pictures ~

Made using 1/2 square triangles

It was fun going through all my previously cut rag quilt squares and repurposing them for this quilt.  And finding more fabric to match!  I used 6 inch squares, then trimmed down to a finished 5 inch square. This quilt kept growing ~ its larger than a crib size but smaller than a twin.  Its 10 squares across and 15 squares in length. 
My next one is going to be pink & white ~ every other line will be white!  I want to make it a crib size, so I don't know if I will use fewer squares across & in length or use smaller squares.  Again, using mostly previously cut squares!  Shopping in my stash is great (most of the time!).
Happy Crafting!
