Riley Blake Tutorial: Chevrons at Play

Today I have a tutorial posted at Riley Blake!  It's for a quilt called Chevrons at Play.

It's a simple quilt that uses the popular chevrons as background fabric.  This chevron fabric was a big hit at Spring Market.  I have seen it in a lot of purses and skirts and quilt backs.  I asked myself what could I do that is different than what I have seen.  That's when I thought about fussy cutting the chevrons so you can have a chevron quilt without piecing chevrons!  The rectangles in the piecing come from 10" squares.  It was a fun quilt to make.  Let me know what you think!

Konda, how do you put your name on your pictures? Do you use a certain program or text box? I want to do that too for my blog and I'm trying to get some ideas.
