More chevrons and text fabric

I got so hooked on these chevrons that I decided to make a quilt.  Although this is not an easy pattern to work with in larger designs. As you can see, it's impossible to break the design into blocks!  The quilt sections have to be worked in coloums, which means it's "stitch a row and get up and press it" - sit down, get up, sit down and get up again countless times...so, to reduce the up and downs I worked on three columns at the same time.  I am liking the look alot and ideally I would need a fourth column, but it remains to be seen whether it will get done.  The fabrics are various text prints and Moda's Mod Centruy collection.
