On labour day I wandered into my sewing room about 1230. At 2130. I wandered out with this. (with appropriate breaks for coffee, beer and dinner  Grin)

It was my first time using a charm pack. My first time using shot cotton. My first time letting hubby pick the borders. This one. I'm keeping.

Adorable!  Nine hours?  That's impressive.  Now I really feel like a slacker!  I'm glad you're keeping it for yourself!  Hubby did a good job with the borders!   Cheesy

Now I want to get a charm pack! I don't even usually like chevrons, too trendy lately, but I love this! And I've recently been learning about quilting so I know how this was made! It's so easy but looks so good. Yay! It's great.
