Chevron Baby Quilt

8 comments » staff projects

If you are looking for a quick and easy baby quilt, this one is it.  The fabric requirements are very few and it goes together lickity-split.  Chevrons seem to have taken over the quilting world especially when it comes to children’s quilts.  

I used our Quilter’s Candy Baisics along with some fabrics from my stash for the front and binding, and put one of our soft and snuggly flannels on the back.  Remember if you are using two types of fabric, it is best to pre-wash your fabric since quilter’s cotton and flannel shrink at different rates.

I designed this quilt for one of my “adopted” sons.  He and his wife who live in Texas just had about the cutest baby boy ever.  I might be slightly biased, but I don’t think so.  I figured every boy in Texas needed a Red, White, and Blue quilt.

I simply used half-square-triangles to create the chevron pattern.  I even quilted it on my own!  I echoed the chevrons about ½ inch apart from each other. (Somebody should have told me how crazy that was.)  It took a bit of time, but I think the finished product was worth it.

    Good job on the quilting! It does take time but looks so striking and “honors” the quilt. Lucky little boy!
