    A Ribbon Stripe plus a large scale floral equals "I really like this"

    sometimes, two rogue fabrics will have a chance meeting from the separate bins and shelves of my stash, and when they make a great pair, the gears start turning in my head.
    Such is the case with this Hoffman floral (a thrift store treasure find, by the way) and this Marcus stripe, bought only because a quilt shop was having a great sale and the stripes are always on the sale rack.

    I made 'chevron' units with the striped fabric and framed the floral. Added some four-patch units, and voila!

    This just needs the wide floral border sewn on, and I will take the time to miter it.

    have a good evening.

    That is very clever. I like your whole design. It has given me a great idea to do with some stripped material that I have.

    Wonderful!! Love the floral and matched with that stripe turned into chevrons is to die for. A beauty made even more special from the frugality of it. Awesome job!

    Great use of what you have in your stash. Using that floral is going to really look good as the border.
