I am venturing into the land of Modern Quilting with fabric choices in bright polka-dots, set with solids. I have also chosen to make a modern design for this new quilt top.
I found these great polka dot prints in a jelly roll, and thought immediately that they would look fantastic set with some solids – like grey and yellow for a modern quilt.
The Chevron is still trending, so I decided to create a “fat” and “thin” chevron using the grey for the wider chevron shape and the 2 1/2 inch strips from the jelly roll for the more narrow chevron shape. As you can see there are many 1/2 square triangles involved in this project. and I have found an EASY way to make them.
It starts with two 2 1/2 in strips sewn right sides together on both edges. See a future post for details.
I am happy with the first two blocks, what do you think???
This finished size is a rectangle – GASP- so, non-traditional of me!
Stay tuned as I will be finishing this (hopefully) in the next week or 2 or so………
