Forties chevron

Scrappy chevrons inspired by this quilt that was bookmarked ages ago:
I love how all the chevrons are solids or semi-solids.
Note to self….wait until destructo-baby and his stuffed duck are asleep before laying out blocks.

    I just love the orange that you showed at Stash Manicure. I do believe orange is going to become the new So glad Madame Samm invited you to be a guest.
