Chevron Accent Quilt

My Chevron Accent Quilt is done! This pattern was so simple, and sew up fast & easy! It's a great pattern to have on hand. It's especially great for a beginner. Cindy has clear instructions with photos of each step. This pattern is available only as a PDF, and will be emailed to you upon receipt of payment. No waiting in the mail to get started on this beauty!

It took a day, or so, to cut and sew, and I was able to quilt it in 2 days. I am so happy with the quilting. Not just happy, but maybe overly proud. I had a little debate with myself on how to quilt it, and took a few suggestions. After thinking everything over, I still didn't know what to do. I decided I better just start by stitching in the ditch and hope the rest would come to me. I did step outside my comfort zone. I really am not too expierenced quilting on the machine yet, but I think this quilt totally changed that. I found myself not thinking about what I was doing, and just did it.


I took the stripes as an opportunity to do different designs. I quilted 6 different designs, 3 in each the grey and pink. It was my first time doing 4 of these designs. Maybe that's why I'm so proud. Personally, I think they turned out pretty darn good for a first time :)

Warning: Picture overload ahead.







I especially like the back.
I love the design strip of grey.




Cindy has also created a Flickr group to add your versions of her quilt.
