Meg wanted a chevron quilt for baby shower gift. So I decided to give her a couple of choices. Colors are yellow and grey. I had a little fun with these. First up the basic chevron. All of these are 3.5 in HSTs, all have the same yellow fabric. All have the same backing, I had all three loaded on the frame at one time.
|Chevron Quilt #1 (catchy name right?)|
The second is just an alternating chevron. I tried this one with the scrappy greys and it was just way too much. I settled it down a bit with the solid grey.

The last one was a bit of fun with squares and different size chevrons. What fun, I'll post the EQ7 project with all three next week some time.
The back is grey flannel (so soft) with the left over yellow strips and a couple of grey ones so that I had enough. Love when I don't have to put scraps away :) Hobbs polydown batting. Light and warm. Glide thread on top light grey and magna glide bobbins. Oh boy I'll have to go take a look the name of the pantograph All are 42x48, which I think is a great size for babies, big enough to lay on the floor for tummy time. So how many different ways have you made chevron quilts?
Hope everyone has great quilty week. Check out the linky parties on the side bar for lots of inspiration.
