Chevrons have been popular in the design world for a while. I liked the look, but had trouble achieving it with a quilt until I found a great tutorial here on Pinterest. My previous attempts either didn’t match, or I hated how the colors looked when I was done. I really liked Stitched in Color’s approach – it’s very flexible and easy to follow.
I decided to use vintage sheets and other shabby chic-looking fabrics to do a little test. Although I had some issues with the free motion quilting along the way, I’m really happy with the final result:
I used a pretty green floral vintage sheet for the backing, and cut the binding from a pretty Ralph Lauren thrifted sheet.
