New Leader Ender UFO

After having company over the weekend followed by a day trip with some friends on Monday I'm ready to settle down and sew.

I pulled this UFO out of the drawer and started playing around with it on my design wall the other day. These 5" charms are from a Keepsake Quilting charm bundle and I apparently was thinking Depression blocks at the time.
But, after laying them out in several different ways I've decided on a Chevron pattern instead matching the HSTs to each other for the Chevron points.
I've got to finish trimming them up and piece the rest of the charms that you can see in the first photo but I'm thinking this will be a keeper quilt because I'm loving these fabrics and this color palette.
In fact, it might be hard to keep this a leader ender project! Hopefully once I have the blocks all laid out on the design wall it will be easier to resist sewing it all together NOW.

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday@Freshly Pieced.


  1. The colors are very soothing, and the chevron pattern is rather fun. Looks good.

  2. I like the chevron pattern you're showing here, and they're such pretty fabrics. Isn't it fun to play around with blocks, when there are so many layout options?

  3. Love your new pattern choice Deb! It's fun and fresh :*) I just became the owner of a brand new pack of charms and didn't quite know what I was going to do with them.....thanks for the inspiration! Most of my leader/ender projects end up taking over at some point and become the star LOL!!!

  4. Looks great Deb! I'm teaching a Chevron class tonight and next Wed. and we're doing basically the same concept, but the could choose charm pack or layer cake. I just saw a great idea on the me and my sisters blog about their free giggles pattern which adds a background strip between them. I looks like a great idea I might have to try.

  5. Love the fresh twist you are using here. The palette is quite soothing....nice for a change for me.

  6. The chevron quilts I've been seeing sure make me want to try one. And this really is a pretty color palette. Really good decision.

  7. Seeing all these chevron quilts is really tempting me to start one. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Those make a GORGEOUS chevron!!! Great decision. :D
