Scrappy Chevron and Cuzco

This week I finished the blocks for my Scrappy Chevron UFO and started sewing the rows together. So far the alternating bottom rows are done which is why my chevrons look wonky the further right you look. I think I have enough of the background fabric left for a skinny inner border and then I'll see what I find in my stash for the outer border... at any rate it should be a flimsy by the end of the week.
The Fat Quarter Shop had some Cuzco by Kate Spain yardage on sale recently so I thought it would be a good idea (ha!) to indulge since I have a jelly roll and some mini charm packs of Cuzco sitting on my shelf. The fabric on the left will be perfect for backing and the others will work in as binding or something else. I so love Kate's lines!
I think the green fabric from the Juggling Summer line will make an interesting binding for a future project using some charm packs on said shelf and I chose a few neutrals too.
With HOT & sticky weather in the forecast today (real feel of 100 degrees!) I might get some sewing time in later in the day after our daughter and her boyfriend head for home. Tomorrow our son and I head out for a day trip for college visit #1. I'm looking forward to seeing how my very logical son approaches his college decision over the next months!

  1. Chevron looks fabulous! Your new fabrics are luscious. Green is not my favorite color, but I really like that one for some reason. Good luck with the college trip----always an adventure.

  2. Wow! I love your Chevron quilt. Sometimes the simplest designs make the most striking quilts. The fabrics by Kate Spain are great. Some of those blues would look great with some of mine! LOL

  3. It's hot and sticky here too which makes it great sewing weather. Love those fabrics. Kate Spain uses such yummy colors.

    Have fun on the college visits. Time flies much too fast when the kids start looking at leaving the nest.

  4. oooh... nice! I love that chevron design, and the bold fabrics really make it. The colors are nice and "cool" too.

    Good luck with the college thing!

  5. Your Chevron looks wonderful. I never thought to do Chevrons scrappy. Now I have a new items on my to do list!

  6. Love the chevrons! You certainly keep plugging away at those UFO's. You are an inspiration.

  7. I agree--the chevron quilt looks great!

  8. Definitely on my some day list -- a simple shape used magnificently!

  9. very pretty chevrons!
