Slowly but surely the re-do of the jelly roll race quilt is coming together as a chevron quilt. And I like it. The goal was to use only quarter square triangles. I didn’t like the bulk in the center seam so added 1-1/2 inch strips between the triangles.
The triangles have the seams pressed open. I know you are all aghast at me for that as I preach pressing to the side. But this time it was the right thing to do.
And as I stitched I found that I could match the points with the strips better if I stitched with the pieced strip on top. However to keep the seam allowance from flipping as I stitched I had to use a stylus.
So what do you think? Are those strips too distracting? Other possibilities were to use different fabrics for the black strips and varying widths for the background strips but I took the easy way this time. How would you do this one?
