Broken Chevron Pieces

      This morning I hosted GCQ Day Bee at my home.  We had a good crowd and made plans to make blocks for children’s comfort quilts.  Check out the GCQ blog for some show and tell from members today.

    After lunch, I got to work on the “Broken Chevron Picnic Quilt” sample for JoAnn Fabrics class.  This is the first time I have pieced a quilt similar to this.  There are LOTS of bias edges.  I had the strip sets pieced last night

so today I cut them into strips and added the sashing. Here is the pieced top which is about 62" square.

The only fabric I bought was the bright green which will also be the backing.  All the other fabric came from my stash.
