Before my new sewing machine appeared on the scene, I started putting this quilt top together. I really like chevron quilts, but wanted the look without the triangles, so drafted a simple pattern that used rectangles set on point instead. Simples. I also sized the blocks to efficiently use strips cut the width of the fabric. No waste.
|how simple are these blocks?|
All the fabric in the rainbow array came from the remnant bins at Abakhan in Liverpool. It is possible that I stalk that place - spending (too) many lunch hours delving through their fabrics by the kilo to find the hidden treasures. I used 1/4 metre cuts of each colour along with 2 metres of background - that's a whole quilt top for around £20!
As usual, Mr George was VERY helpful in assisting with block arrangement. I don't know how I would manage without him.
