My chevron quilt is on the blog today and I cant wait to make another one! This one was done with Christmas fabrics and need a new one now Christmas is over...whomp whomp. These were super easy to make and I was able to make two lap size quilts out of 2 layer cakes (you can also cut your own squares and make them any size you like).
2 layer cakes (will make two lap quilts) - one white or any other solid color and another for the printed portion of the chevron
4 yards - backing
3/4 yard - binding
Size: Approximately 50 x 60 inches (after washed and dried).
--I used Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey for Moda and Bella Solid in white also by Moda. --
How to make the chevron pattern:
1. Cut each square diagonally.
2. Match one of the 1/2 squares with the color 1/2 square and sew a 1/4 inch seam. Do this for all your squares.
3. Arrange the squares to form the chevron pattern.
4.Peice together then quilt and bind :) I just used a grey print quilting cotton from JoAnn's that was on sale for the back and an aqua for the binding.
So the best part about making two of the same quilt is to be able to give one away without feeling like you are losing your new best friend. This quilt's twin was sold in a silent auction where the proceeds went to a local women's shelter and my good friend, Kat, was the winner...yay! So I know the quilt is in a good loving home (now I sound completely cheesy...lol).
Thanks for stopping by!
