With my Emerald Challenge quilt done, the only "must-do" I have on my list between now and March 31st is my Lovely Year of Finishes quilt. So when I came across a quick and simple sew along using Sew Caroline's chevron tutorial over at the Sew Fine Fabric blog, I couldn't resist! Making a chevron quilt is continuously on my "someday soon" list. While I don't know that I'll end up using a chevron design for this project, it was enough to attract my attention.
I chose these two fabric combinations as options from Sew Fine Fabric:
|Green ombre from V & Co. and a gray/white stripe for backing/binding|
And sorted into "darks" (lots of dots), "mediums" (some dots) and "light" (few dots)
Just for fun, I positioned some squares into half-square triangles to see how the dots might look. I think it'll work--it'll just be even less contrast than the ombre--but I won't really know until I get started sewing! After my experimentation with my emerald quilt last week, I'm feeling quite daring! :)
Time to get piecing these HSTs so I'm ready for week 3 of the sew along--layout and assembly!
What do you think? Will the dots work?
