Chevron quilt

A few days ago I posted about the latest quilt that I am making.  It's a Chevron quilt using this here tutorial bee square fabrics - how to make a zig-zag quilt without piecing triangles I don't think it will be finished before my days off are over as I start back tomorrow :( however I have made some progress with it. 

I have completed the blocks for five rows (only four shown) and while I like it, I think it needs a contrast stripe to break up each purple row.  So off the Spotlight I went and purchased a metre of this here (on the right) gold fabric

And also a metre of this gorgeous printed number.  Unfortunately I think the brightness of this will overpower my purple flower fabric, which I want to be the hero of the quilt. 
 I will definitely get use of it though, maybe make a bag from it! I hope to get some blocks made up with my new gold fabric today so I can get a real feel for what it will look like.  Wish me luck!
Warmest wishes


  1. I pinned that same zig zag quilt tutorial. I love what you have so far. The gold fabric will really showcase your purple "hero" fabric.

    1. I think that's where I saw it Rikka! You sure do have some amazing things pinned!
