It all began........
She even went out and bought special fabrics but in the end she found a scrappy pattern on the net that she liked and this is the result.
Very suitable for a man, bold, with nice warm colours flowing through. You can see more images of this quilt on Linda's blog as well as the link for making this chevron quilt.
I still have Kiwiana fabrics and so with 141 x 3.5 inch squares of patterned fabric and some black to alternate I now have a work in progress on the same quilt design.
Linda's quilt has 5 inch scrappy squares and mine 3.5 inch squares. Linda's has a much more dramatic effect (especially with her lovely quilting to accent) but the smaller chevrons have their place too.
Chevron quilts are now a new favourite for me and I am linking to:-
