Piecing | Big Chevron Quilt WIP {Quilting}

Wednesday, 23 October 2013

If you follow me on Instagram you know I have made some progress with my Big Chevron Quilt - a pattern I am testing for Jess

I have made my 12 stamp collection blocks, and cut them all up so that the chevron pattern shows. I was worried it would be wonky but actually the fact that none of the blocks are not matching really adds interest. 

And the last of the piecing begins, and a quilt top is finally in sight! I cannot wait to get this quilt finished. This is really my favourite quilt yet (and it is not even finished) and will be perfect for my new sewing room. 

Although I went with a vintage theme, the aim was to keep it simple - and in a way further emaphasise the orange and brown chevron zigzag. I used cream low volume fabrics I got in a swap, and white cotton as a last zigzag and background. 

So next basting (my least favourite part) and quilting (my favourite part) and of course binding! I am very excited about this one, it may a finish very soon! 

Linking up to WIP Wednesday today.

    Ps a new follower too....

  4. It's looking fab! Can't wait to see it all finished up.

  5. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of this. Those photos look great :)

  6. Nat you have gone so far above and beyond with this! It is going to be absolutely stunning!

  7. The scrappiness of your quilt makes it really fun. I'm not sure basting is anyones favorite part - certainly not mine either. Good luck with the finish, Jess creates amazing things.

  8. I love the colour palette you're working with for this quilt - and I can't wait to see the finished product, I'm sure that Jess will love it!

  9. I love the way you get that line between the blocks when you cut them. This is going to be such a cool quilt.
