Design to Reality

Making something from a design is always, for me a great accomplishment. I do not take a lot of my ideas/designs all the way to making it. Today, though, I have made this mini quilt top, which I may turn into place mats and a table runner.

The design I came up with for one of the “Quilt Design A Day” was this simple wonky chevron design.

That turned into this:

I paper pieced the wonky chevron design which is ~6″ x 10″. I am used peppered cottons for the chevrons purchased from my LQS (who also has an online store):

The sashing fabric is Flax Yarn Dyed Essex linen which I bought at Fresh Modern Fabrics.

That is my finish for this week, and linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts.
