Chevrons = Finished!

Here it is – the finished Chevron quilt (Terry Atkinson’s Tortilla Strips):




The finished size is 60×75.  It’s going to be a great quilt to snuggle under sitting on the couch.  The batting is wool (my first one).

I’m once again resurrecting my project list:

To Be Quilted:
Fire Escape Quilt – it’s a Christmas gift
Halloween Swoon block – can’t decide if this will be a wall hanging or a centerpiece.

On The Back Burner:
Reunion – Cluck Cluck Sew’s Inside Out pattern.
(This is going to take a lot longer than I had originally thought!)
I haven’t touched this since the summer!

Next Up:
Lucy’s Crab Shack in Cluck Cluck Sew’s Plus pattern.
Probably not ‘next up’ any longer.  Once I get back to the Reunion quilt, I’m not going to want to jump right back in and do the reverse of the Inside Out pattern right away.

Somewhere down the line:
Table runners/coasters for the living room tables.  Maybe not.  These are currently WIPs and I quickly fell out of love with them.
Mug rug for my desk Done! (And one for Nichole, too!)
Bliss quilt…I still have no clue what pattern
A Christmas Quilt
A Halloween Quilt
A second Project Linus quilt.  I’m cutting the FQs today.  I think I’ll work on it at the quilt retreat in Feb.
And many, many more!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

      Thank you! I had been wanting to use Chevrons for like forever and I thought this would be a great project for them. I absolutely love how it turned out! I’m very proud of this quilt.

      Hi Beth! I recently (mostly) finished Fire Escape. I’m contemplating adding a border, that’s why it’s only mostly finished. It was neat to be able to walk through a block with Terry.
