Introducing the Chevron Quilt

Here’s the thing: I’ve only been reading blogs about a year now, and the one thing that amazes me is how quickly some bloggers get their projects done.  Bloggers appear to be         M O T I V A T E D!

Which inspires me to be a bit more conscientious with my own languishing projects.

So, with that, here’s a quilt I start earlier this year and finished binding today:

Admittedly I’m a little ambivilant about the way the colors all came together.  I like it, like it a lot, though I don’t love it yet.  I’m thinking if I did it all over that I might keep the eggplant color out.  Meanwhile, I’m still basking in the fact that it’s done!!  It was modeled after this Chevron quilt, though I learned quickly that all those triangles were sort of driving me crazy; hence the borders on each block.

Here’s the back (which I love almost more than the front):

That floral fabric was the starting point for this whole project.  That’s an eggplant thread on Blush Kona cotton.  Machine quilted by Elly’s Sheared Sheep.

Next quilt: a 5th grader’s version of Modrian.  All my sewing machines are being serviced presently, so I’ll  only be cutting fabrics in the next two weeks . . . that is when I’m not finishing a whopper of a cross-stitch project or sanding the front deck.

I like to make things, lots of things, but not all things. I love to sew, knit, embroider, take pictures, scrapbook, dye fibers, work clay in the summer, garden. I want to try weaving, spinning, and stain glass work. I have no interest in auto body, upholstery, or tanning (either working animal skin or purposefully darkening my own).
