Scrappy Chevron

It’s finished!  It only took a year and a half but it’s done.  :)  My Mom started this quilt and we worked on it slowly when I’d visit…now that its done I’m not sure why we didn’t finish it sooner!
All those different prints look like a big fat mess together until you pair them with the solid color chevrons.  The solids pull everything together so nicely.
There used to be a free pattern online for this quilt that we used, but I can’t seem to find it now and the link is broken!  If I find it I will update the link! 
The backing and binding are from her stash.  We made this a tad smaller than the inspiration pattern so it’s a generous throw size.
I like making quilts with my Mom because she does all the work.  Now that we live just down the road hopefully there will be many more!

    What a wonderful quilt — I like the doing it together thing. I imagine it will bring back lots of memories later on. I love your work.

    Great quilt! On my list of things to do: make at least one quilt from each Cluck Cluck Sew pattern! Yep, I like them THAT much!

    What a cheerful quilt! I'd love to have that living at my house. Lucky you to be sewing with your mom.

    I love your fabric choices! It looks fantastic! I think it's great to do a project with your mum (or mom) too!

    That is lovely and it is great to see some quilts good for boys. I am finishing a boy quilt today – hourglass- I will post it on my blog later.

    Love the quilt. I also know how wonderful it is to spend time sewing together. I love sewing with both of my daughters.

    I LOVE this! I've used this pattern before (in the conventional one direction/white background way) and I really love that too, but now I must try this!

    This is beautiful! I love scrap quilts. I loved the Boy 1 quilt, but I think I love this one just as much. This would be perfect for all the scraps I have!

    I like this quilt even better than the previous one with more controlled colors!

  20. Becky August 10, 2012 at 1:19 am #

    This is really a pretty one! Really like all the color and the overall scrappiness of this quilt.

    I'm kind of obsessed with chevron – and this is such a fun variation!

  22. Mimi August 10, 2012 at 2:24 am #

    It looks amazing and I'm not one who is big on chevron… but the quilt you made with your mom is beautiful. Thanks for sharing!!

  42. sariah August 13, 2012 at 5:48 am #

    I LOVE the colors!!! Thanks for showing this. I was looking for inspiration for my next quilt. I will totally study your color combos.

  43. trish August 13, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    I swear that is on my list of quilts to make!! :o) Are you all settled in? How wonderful to be back "home". I hope it is in the cards for me to move back "home" to the north west coast. I miss the ocean something fierce! And the good food. And no humidity. And being outdoors more. :o)

  44. Sarah August 13, 2012 at 5:18 pm #

    I love this quilt but how special it must be that you did it together. I just made some coasters using your instructions for the chevron block. This makes me want to jump in head first to a quilt.

  45. {northern cottage} August 13, 2012 at 7:03 pm #

    AHHHH Completely gorgeous! I'm so envious that you can do this amazing work! awesome job!

  46. Michele August 14, 2012 at 10:41 am #

    So wonderful but I'm betting the time you get to spend together is the best part.

  47. Lea August 17, 2012 at 3:17 am #

    That quilt is so fabulous! I can see it is already getting the love it deserves. And how cool is that that you and your Mom got to make it together:) Great job!!!
