Here's my version of a chevron quilt! You'll find the instructions in 3 parts:
Part 1: Fabric requirements and cutting
Part 2: Making the rows
Part 3: Assembling the quilt
Part 4: Wrap-up and making a larger quilt
If you have any questions leave them in the comments. I'll try to answer them there for all to see!
Baby Chevron Quilt
finished size 39" x 45 1/2"
Choose 12 coordinating prints and a border fabric.
(I've given you the exact measurement needed in case you want to work from a stash)
Fabrics 1 and 12 (first and last fabrics): 9" or 3/8 yard
Fabrics 2 through 11: 5" or 1/4 yard
30" or 1 yard
10"-12 1/2" (depending on the width of your fabric) or 1/2 yard
Tip: Before cutting strips, be sure to straighten the edge of your fabric and make sure it is cut perpendicular to the fold. An easy way to do this is to use 2 rulers. Place the horizontal line of one ruler along the fold. Butt the second ruler up to the edge of the first. Remove the first ruler and trim. Now your edge is perfectly perpendicular to the fold!
Cut strips the width of the fabric.
From each of fabrics one and twelve, cut 2 strips 4 1/2".
From each of fabrics two through eleven, cut 2 strips 2 1/2".
From the solid white, cut 29 strips 1".
From the border fabric, cut 4 strips 2 1/2".
From the binding fabric, cut 5 strips 2 1/2".
