Sawtooth Flimsy a quilting Acident


A few weeks back (oh did I mention the computer blew up) I set out to make a quilt for a lady at work that is having a baby.  She asked me for a Chevron quilt.


I had seen a picture of a Chevron that was not a HST which I had done in the past.  It used Rectangles cut into triangles.  I thinking I can do that.  I sat down and cut out all of my material (you know me I can make multiple quilts at once).  Any way after cutting it all out I went to lay out my Chevron quilt and had to laugh as I needed half cut one direction and half the other.  So taking my blunder to my EQ7 I created a new pattern which I am going to call my Sawtooth Quilt.  Hey it was almost a Chevron!

I really love this design (not a big fan of the chevron). This one is so much prettier. Sometimes mistakes turn out to be better than the planned one.
