Chevrons, Chevrons, Chevrons!!!

We are all a little bit...okay, a little TOO excited for the brand new grouping of Chevrons by The Riley Blake Designers!! With two new sizes, new colors, tonals and multi colors, there is a chevron for every project and color scheme! Great for decorating parties, making cute tote bags, mod skirts, home decor accessories or how about making an entire quilt with these babies??
When the last group of Chevrons came out, Caroline used the fabulous gray to make Amy Butler's Gum Drop Pillow!! How awesome does it look in her living room! And I love that little accent pillow on the couch to create a cohesive look! Want to learn to make the Gum Drop Pillow yourself? Well you're in luck!! Caroline is teaching the Class next Saturday! Sign up here!
Are you working on a room redo for one of the kids for Christmas or does your living room need a little pick me up? Pick a color chevron that shows up in the fabrics you're already working with a create a simple pair of curtains and a matching pillow! I think that would look mighty fine!!
Choose a red or a green to make modern stockings! Orange, brown, black and lavendar Chevrons would be super cute as cuff on a pair of Halloween pajama bottoms or pillowcase!

I LOVE this Quilted Chevron Tote Bag tutorial by the Riley Blake Design Team!! Every single color would look amazing as this simple yet chic bag! I love the simplicity of just quilting along the chevron lines for a sturdy bag thats fresh and modern!! Make one (or a couple) as Christmas gifts, or baby shower gift as I think it would be an adorable diaper bag!
We hope you all are just as in love and feeling inspired by these pretty graphic prints as we are! There's really no limits to what you can do with a good chevron!!
Happy Creating!! Show us what you're working on, tag us on Facebook on your project pictures!
