Patchwork Chevron

Life has been busy - work is busy, quilting a lot, kids are always busy.  I sometimes feel like I don't have a minute to veg anymore.  BUT this week at work we had meetings which I should have traveled to, but Jake had a program that I wasn't going to miss - so instead of traveling to the meetings, I've been sitting on conference call/webex meetings for 10 hours every day this week!  I decided I needed something mindless to do during the calls so I would stay involved and pay attention - and isn't binding perfect for that? 
 
So I 've been binding up a storm and have a few finishes to show in the next week.  As I said the week has been busy - so pictures aren't great. 
 
I picked this quilt to show first because it is one of my favorites and I'm so glad to call it done! 
I finished the top last year when my friend Ann and I did our sewing retreat.  We both made one.  It is a quick quilt to put together.  I think the results are bold and fun!  I have seen this quilt done in varies lines and looks - and want to copy each and everyone I see! 

 
I quilted this in my early stages of the new machine - and loved the look of the quilting on the solid grey French General fabric.
