T-Shirt Quilt in Riley Blake Yellow Chevron

I finished this quilt for Alana several weeks ago.  This is the first time I've used Riley Blake chevron.  The quilt is so much cooler in person.  I love how the kona cotton cardinal matched the shirt in the center of the second row.  Alana wanted yellow for the backing. I didn't have a sample of the yellow chevron fabric so I guessed at which yellow would match.  I first picked canary but when the fabrics arrived - it was too bright!  Now that I had the yellow chevron in person...I was able to use my Robert Kaufman color chart & the perfect match is 'CORN'!!!  It took me a little longer to get the quilt but done Alana was happy with the quilt and that made me happy!
