Some chevrons

I have been trying to keep on top of Block lotto this year (I say this in January completely without irony).  I understand that this year will be less pictorial, more geometric, which I confess is not really my scene.  But I like the idea of working on a year long sampler & this is my year for doing these things (I have EVERYTHING crossed for a baby cow next Dec/Jan & that is going to be quite the time-drain). 
 Maybe I will give it a try....maybe I will try it for the first six weeks & then forget it completely until I unearth it again in a few years.  Maybe I will never start it at all, but at least I did make a handful of blocks to send in. 
The first one I call the chocolate lab chevron, the others are from FQs that arrived here to compensate for international postage.  As it happens, that swap had a black, white &/or gray component & by & large the FQs sent were gray.  Funny how that happens....& thinking myself funny, I made two chevron blocks from a chevron FQ.
