    Double Slice Chevron??

    Ok, so I am completely obsessed with quilting. Now that I have that out of the way, how do you think a chevron quilt would look with the double slice layer quilt blocks??

    Not sure how you would get a Chevron using the double slice. They are both blocks. How would you go about doing that?

      Take patterned lYer cake and do double slice "procedure". You end up a block. Then take it and sew wth sold color with chevron "procedure"

        I'd need to see what you mean, sorry I'm a visual learner.

            I think I understand what you mean, but not really sure how it would look. I suppose you could do a few sample blocks to see if you like. On that note, it does not sound like something I would want to do.

              Does it sound like too much work??

                I can see it will be scrappy which is fun. But a double slice will have big areas and some smaller ones. it's not going to have an even look. Do you know what I mean? Some scrappy chevrons....

                  I think it would over complicate a design that's intended to be crisp and simple.

                    The Fons & Porter tut. is for paper piecing, which I don't do, except for Jenny's strip quilts. I cannot visualize combining chevron with Double Slice Layer Cake. They are 2 dif. concepts & 2 dif. tuts. If you figure it out, send us pics. JCY

                      Not to much work, just not visually appealing to me. Give it a try, you may like the way it looks.

                        I'm not too crazy about it. I think it ends up being too chopped up looking.

                        Before you speak,
                        T - is it TRUE?
                        H - is it HELPFUL?
                        I - is it INSPIRING?
                        N - is it NECESSARY?
                        K - is it KIND?

                          After looking though some pictures I think I like the cleaner looks better. I do like scrappy, but not for this pattern.

                            I think you should go ahead with your idea. This is how great new patterns are born.
