Tara's Shattered Chevrons Bed Runner

It's so fun to be able to share a completely different take on the same pattern as the last post: the Shattered Chevrons pattern from Improvising Tradition. Tara of Quilter's Stash, made this lovely bed runner version. I think the chevron design is so effective in this long, thin arrangement.

I also love the fabrics Tara chose. This isn't a color scheme I have ever used, but I think I will. It feels autumnal, but I think it will work throughout the year too.

The quilting is fabulous as well!

Thanks so much letting me share your work Tara!

Nancy's Shattered Quilt

I was delighted to see Nancy's version of Shattered Chevrons Quilt from Improvising Tradition, and I'm so pleased she agreed to let me share it with you. I love the combination of green fabrics she chose. The lime stands out so nicely against the Peppered Cotton background. The quilt is a wedding gift for a couple who met as dancers on the set of the musical Wicked, so the color scheme takes its inspiration from the show, which such a neat way to personalize it.

If you looks closely you can see Tia Curtis' custom quilting which are lyrics from the couple's favorite songs. Don't you love the lime thread she used? It really is such a special quilt.
