Easy Chevron Quilt Block Tutorial

Chevron Quilt Blocks are awesome!  Aren’t they?  I didn’t want though a complicated quilt block.  I wanted something quick and easy.  Something that wouldn’t tax my brain…and I could use up my stash while I’m at it.

I found that if I matched up a few squares, I could make a bunch.  Use this and you will find that your stash will dwindle, and you can feed your chevron fix for a little bit.

How to sew a chevron quilt block:

1)  Lay right sides together the background and 5″ X 5″ main fabric

2)  With a ruler and pencil, draw a line from corner to corner of the square

3)  Sew on either side of the drawn line.  A scant 1/4″ is best

4)  Cut on drawn line and iron

5)  Repeat with other squares

6)  Play with your layout- you can put the 2 matching blocks together, or you can mix and match for a scrappy chevron quilt block.  Either way works great!

This is a great way to use charm packs + a background.  Sew up a few for a baby or lap sized quilt.

If you don’t have a quilt to make, but would like– you can make it into a finished project.  Check out the 52 Quilt Block Pick up series from last year for ideas and tutorials!
