I finally decided to get on the bandwagon with a chevron quilt. I have seen many different techniques out there to create a chevron pattern. I checked them out and decided to go at it using half square triangles. I used the traditional method of drawing a line down the middle and then sewing a 1/4″ to either side.
Since then, I saw this amazing tutorial by Camille Roskelley of Simplify that changed everything!
I have not yet tried this method, but I can’t wait to use it.
Here’s the quilt laid out on my design wall (i.e. mirrored closet door with cotton batting spray glued to it…shhh…don’t tell my husband.)
Here’s the binding in progress…I am back to hand binding. I like the look and feel better. Plus, I like the process of hand binding.
Here she is all finished. This quilt measures 41″ square. I just love it!
I used this adorable tiny bee fabric for the back that I have had in my stash for years.
Here’s the entire quilt. I love the color way and the combination of colors. I like this so much that I can’t wait to make another chevron quilt!
Here it is in my favorite photo spot on my gate!
This was such a fun and simple quilt to make! Enjoy!
