Almost Herringbone



There is cutting and sewing and pressing going on! Check out what those strips of Shades of Grey are turning into.

I was completely influenced by the fabric itself. Jan's bold graphics are so inspiring to me. Such a great change from florals these days. The one Ragg Tagg print fit perfectly into a concept I'd been exploring. So I essentially have taken that one fabric and made it large-scale for the quilt pattern itself. It was so easy to do and I love the effect.


And check out how well it all works with our patio chairs.

Depending on how my evenings go I should be able to share the finished project in a week or so.

Please stay tuned for another project I'm launching next week. This one's a biggie!

Every time I see a project made with this fabric I think that someone has taken the picture in black and white, and then I have to readjust my view of the picture. So interesting!

That's beautiful! I wouldn't have thought I'd like something in only shades of gray, but your design is so dynamic. It draws you in. Nice job!!
