I love making baby quilts! A baby quilt is a great opportunity to try out a new block or technique without a huge time commitment. Or a chance to satisfy the need to use that fat quarter bundle or new line of fabric without breaking the bank.
My latest finish is called “Chevron Baby!” and was made for the new grandson of a co-worker. Most of the fabric is from a fat quarter bundle of the line called Bungle Jungle with the addition of the dark charcoal.
I’ve always loved chevrons and was happy to have a reason to figure out how I was going to do it. There are several ways to make chevrons and I used the version where you set pieced square blocks on point then trim all the edges.
This turned out to be a really fun and fast quilt to put together. I started cutting it out on a Saturday afternoon and had the top finished the same evening. I quilted it using straight lines running vertically through the peaks and valleys; simple, quick and effective.
It’s also very easy to adjust the size of the blocks and I will definitely be making another one, probably a lap quilt size. If you would like to know how to make this version of a chevron quilt just leave me a comment and I will do up a little tutorial.
