Blogger's Quilt Festival: Scrappy Chevrons

Squeaking in just under the wire here, but I was so excited about this finish I just have to show it off :)

I finished this lovely last night! It was such a huge relief. It has been in the works for almost a year now.

There is something like 1,000 2" x 4" (finished) rectangles in this. I didn't keep track of the exact number. Though now I kind of wish I had!

Backed all in one piece because after putting the top together, I was out of steam!

This was my best attempt at getting it all in one shot. I wish I had a second story in my house. Bet that would've helped. I'm not really sure how big this is, actually! It has to be at least 80" on each side because of the amount of binding I used. I would guess probably closer to 90".

I just love Blogger's Quilt Festival. I'm not in it to win it, just for the fun of it. I am looking forward to spending some quality time this weekend going through all the entries and soaking in the quilty inspiration. You should, too! There's so much good stuff over there. Why not go check it out?
