Nov 30: My friend, Laken, who asked for a quilt for her daughter, Timberlin, now wants one for herself. She loves all things Chevron & animal skin prints. I suggested a Chevron with alternating fabrics being skins.
Dec 02: Took time to start playing with options. Laken loves my design. Ordered fabric.
Dec 08: Fabrics here from Fabric.com.
Dec 09: Fabrics here from eQuilter.com.
Dec 31: Prewashed all the fabrics.
Jan 14: Cutting strips. There are many ways to do half square triangles. Here I am using the strip tube method where I sew both sides of a pair of strips then cut the squares from that using The Strip Tube ruler or something similar. Actually I am using Quilt in a Day's Triangle Square Up Ruler because I like the markings better.
Jan 18: Back to work. I need 10 identical blocks per row.
Jan 19: Finished cutting all the blocks. Have enough fabric for a second quilt.

Jan 25: Rows are done.
