Chevron Legacy

Gosh ..... we are almost mid-August and here is another Xmas quilt ..... my "Chevron Legacy".    

My hubby wants to display this one now instead of waiting until December.  Patience, my dear, patience and he will enjoy it even more later.  Our old shed at the cottage is the perfect backdrop for taking quilt photos.

What about some by the lake?

I think I remember seeing that quilt when it was just a top - well done, it looks great! It would make a lovely backdrop to a Christmas tree.

You can use red quilts anytime, you don't have to wait for Christmas. I'd put it on the bed for a month then store it until Christmas. Happy stitching!

I had to laugh at you comment about your quilt being a little different to the design. LOL When do your quilts ever stick to the design. LOL
It is a lovely finish. Is it all in Christmas fabrics? Why not hang it now?

I really like this chevron quilt. I know I won't tackle it because I've done one similar before and absolutely struggled with it. All the more reason to admire yours. :)
