Chevron Cats for a Kitty

One of the many blogs that I follow is Laurie Wisbrun at Scarlet Fig.  Today she posted a picture of the Insignia Quilt with a link to Sarah's tutorial at Bluprint Textiles where a give away of the adorable Olive the Ostrich is also going on.

My favorite part of the quilt is the mix of Chevron with the feature fabric and the way that the various fabrics connect with each other.  After a day and a half with a migraine I couldn't quite wrap my head around reproducing Sarah's pattern but was inspired enough to give the general concept a try.

 It felt good to play with the layout and add pops of color.  The support fabrics were chosen based on the Cat fabric with the fish and birds keeping in theme.

The Creative Grids 2 Peaks in 1 ruler that I picked up during Shop Hop finally got to come out of the shrink wrap. So often I buy rulers and never use them but it was time to Try New Things TNT. You can see that the points aren't perfect but in my mind they're good enough and I assume the Kitty Cat who will be sleeping on the quilt will agree.

Linking up to Melissa at TNT.
