I've finally finished mt version of the Baby Chevron. This was one of my Third Quarter Finish Along Goals. I made it a bit larger than the original, so it's more a lap size than a cot quilt. I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.
Because the contrast between the fore and background was in hue rather than in value, I had to be very careful about my fabric choices. I ended up removing a large number of both grey and orange pieces because they had too much white in them, and this tended to blur the crisp outlines between the chevrons.
I pieced the backing using a variety of smaller grey squares, some sketch and solid orange. The binding is sketch as well. I'm starting to really appreciate the versatility of that nearly solid fabric.
While my initial thought was to quilt it more heavily, the recipient, my son, prefers minimal, so minimal it was. He actually gave me quite a bit of input while I was making it, but he didn't know it was for him. As a result, he's happy with it, and so am I.
