Our guild swapped fat quarters at a meeting to use as inspiration for a mini-quilt. The fabric I got was from Jenean Morrison's Silent Cinema line called Gray Featurette. It's the gray print/border in the below mini-quilt.
Included with the fabric was a note that she liked 'Jewel Tones'. I really had no idea what to do with it until some teal and gold fabric fell on my sewing room floor next to each other on accident. I pulled a bunch of fabrics and went for the improv chevron block (Tutorial over on Six White Horses blog). I actually meant to have more of the gray fabric showing, but after I finished piecing a couple of the strips, this is where my trimming landed it.
I put the remaining fabric on the back with a cute little strip of Kona berry on the binding. The photo looks maroon but I can assure you that's just my bad photography and it's really a berry color.
I hand bound the edges and added a little white piece of ribbon for hanging:
