Here is the fabric that I am going to feature on the back of Sew Spooky. I have this quilting book 9-Patch Pizzazz by Judy Sisneros for fast and easy quilts.
When I made the Chevron border I used patches that were 2.5 by 6.5. When I went to trim, all the other widths (1, 1.5, 2) could trim out to a 7.5 inch width; the 2.5 was a tad short, so I fudged it to make it work. Next time those need to be cut 2.5 by 7. I will try to remember that. The above is me working out the math of it to see why it would not work. At the bottom is my first thought for the back of my quilt. Both are interesting choices.
For the filler Patchwork above I am thinking about how to use the strips I have left over. I think I will start by sewing them together in blocks. Maybe I will get out my design wall today.
