Last night I finished up the half-square triangle zig-zag quilt. I refuse to call it a chevron, because I am so tired of seeing that word everywhere. Every. Where.
You can see bits and pieces of the blue and brown BYU print, which is where I pulled the colors for the fabrics. I'm using it for the backing, but snuck a few pieces of it in the top here and there.
I debated for a very long time whether or not this quilt needed a border. In the end, I decided I liked the edge to edge pattern and am opting out on a border. This decision has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it is was nearly one in the morning and I want to quilt it tomorrow.
Speaking of tomorrow, this is what the fine folks at weather underground say is coming our way tonight and tomorrow. Awesome. I especially like the part about serious threat to life already occurring or imminent. So I've loaded up on firewood, I'm going to make a pot of soup, and hunker down with some more quilting and Gilmore Girls DVD's to keep me company. It should be a productive night. As long as the power stays on.
