Broken Chevron


This is a quilt that is similar to one that was  requested for a customer on etsy.  


We decided that we would do narrower strips of white the next one we do.  I don't know what to refer to this quilt as, so I have just called it Broken Chevron.  Any suggestions for a name?  


There was a lot of wasted fabric in the making of this quilt, so Richard figured out a way to have a lot less waste. The back is leftovers.  It is quilted in dense vertical lines in front, everywhere but the white lines. 


I don't know if I like the front or the back better. 
This fabric line used in this quilt is Petal Poetry Swirl by Exclusively Quilters.
Look for a similar quilt coming up soon for a repeat customer.  This one is available on our Etsy store.

I like it a lot. Broken Chevrons is a great name. The white makes it look so clean and crisp.

Love this quilt. Bright and cheerful. Another name for this type of quilt is French Braid so I don;t know if that'll help with naming it xx

I like the back best. But I usually like my pieced backs better than the front of my quilts too.

Names? I am not good at naming things. But I see the swirls in the colored fabrics and the tilt of the chevron parts. My mind puts that together and I get "Tilt-a-Whirl" - like the ride at the carnival.

Interesting that you decided to go narrower next time - I was thinking wider. LOL But this looks just great. Up the Down Staircase? Very cheerful looking, and I like the back, too.

You're right. Both the front and the back are wonderful. I can't decide either.
