I need today to go smoothly, please. After another horrific food-stealing incident on Monday morning (chocolate chips and raw-bacon) and both the TV and the A/C breaking yesterday, I’d like a drama-free day today.
At least my Halloween decor is all done! Here’s a peek at my living room…
Ta da! I am loving the bold graphic design. I don’t think I could handle the intensity of black and white zigzag most of the time, but something about this and the contrast of the orange stripes in the frames just is so appealing to the eye. I love, love, love it.
From my Facebook discussion, I know that a lot of you are sick to death of zigzags and chevron. Once a trend takes over the crafting world and you see it done in every possible way, what else is to be expected? To tell you the truth, I’m getting sick of it myself.
But as I pictured the decor I wanted for my house, the bold graphic design and black and white zigzags just screamed out to me “Make me a quilt!! You already have all the stuff!”
And it’s true, I did have all the stuff! Now that I’ve finally organized my massive fabric stash, I discovered TONS of black and white fabric that I already had. I even pieced some batting scraps together. The only thing I bought for this quilt was 2 yards for backing.
Annnnnddd…I’m done making zig zag quilts for now.
Ahh, I just love the holidays.
What about you? Yay or nay on the chevron?
