Baby Chevron Quilt

You may have noticed in last week's WIP, I was working on another chevron quilt. Well, the quilt is done and headed off to Project Linus as my second donation to 100 Quilts for Kids.


I made my first one almost a year ago and since then it's had some buzz, been pinned a lot and has sparked many questions and emails for me.

I have a bad habit of making things and not quite remembering how I did it. (I do that with cooking too!) So in the making of this baby, I took some photos and actually wrote down some measurements. I'm in the process of writing the tutorial which will post next week in 3 parts. This finished quilt is 39" x 45 1/2". So stay tuned!



There's still time to give and be eligable for prizes. Just head on over to 100 Quilts for kids!

  6. OK now you've done it. I was NOT going to start any new quilts -- but this one is just too cute. Will wait for your tut and start looking for some fabrics. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

  8. That is a wonderful quilt - your creativity amazes me! I'm sewing the last (center) seam on a 76" square duvet cover of Garden Fence in Kate Spain's Fandango fabric. I'll send you a note when I post a picture - I quilted it in quadrants, and it looks amazing.

  13. I'm so glad you're doing a tutorial on this. I've looked at the pics for your last one many times, and while it looks simple enough, I can't recreate it to save my life. It's the white verticle strip that throws me off - I can put a chevron together just fine, but when it has a tiny bit of sashing between it, I can't get anything to line up. Is it just me?
