Another finish


This is "Bright Chevrons."
A couple of months ago I cut a large quantity of 2" x 9" strips from my stash of bright fabrics. I sewed five strips together and trimmed them to 8" square. I cut the square diagonally and then pieced the resulting triangles.
I quilted it this weekend with simple in-the-ditch outlining the squares. It measures 64 x 82. It will be one of the items in the silent auction at our Rotary Golf Outing on May 16.
[P.S. The quilt brought $150. The successful bidder has purchased a half-dozen of my quilts at previous Golf Outings. I've asked her if she'd like to specify a colorway or pattern, to which she replies that she'll take potluck.]
