Chevron Quilt, a perfect tutorial

I saw a quilted chevron camera strap cover a few days ago and I put that on my sewing bucket list. Having some creative time put aside, I decided to go in search of a straight forward, easy chevron quilting tutorial to try to recreate my own version of a chevron strap.  Instead, I started cutting up my fabrics to create a chevron quilt for Miss M.   This is part 1 as I am obviously about half way through the top of the quilt. I still need to figure out the back, the stitching and the binding.

To see the amazing chevron tutorial, follow this link:

Here is my progress to date, come back soon to hopefully see more (or see the finished product if I can figure it out!)  Remember, I am a novice at quilting. So, my chevrons pretty much match up but my squares, that is another story!  So far, I've cut 206 squares, I have about another 180 to go to make the top of this twin size quilt.

Deciding on the next color scheme, I went with blue

My fabrics, trying to put some color order to them

Next up, turquoise again

I think I've decided this will be the backing

 Until part 2 friends, have a wonderful day and be sure to check out Modern Handcraft's Tutorial on making a chevron quilt!

  1. It is looking fantastic! I bet your daughter is so so excited. Can't wait to see the finished quilt top!

  2. Thank you Nicole! I'm working on attaching top to bottom now, will hopefully finish it today and post pics. Truly appreciate your tutorial. I've recommended it to a lot of people already.
