Chevron Quilt Blocks are awesome! Â Aren’t they? Â I didn’t want though a complicated quilt block. Â I wanted something quick and easy. Â 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. Â 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) Â Lay right sides together the background and 5″ X 5″ main fabric
2) Â With a ruler and pencil, draw a line from corner to corner of the square
3) Â Sew on either side of the drawn line. Â A scant 1/4″ is best
4) Â Cut on drawn line and iron
5) Â Repeat with other squares
6) Â Play with your layout- you can put the 2 matching blocks together, or you can mix and match for a scrappy chevron quilt block. Â Either way works great!
7) Â Sew the pairs together
This is a great way to use charm packs + a background. Â 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. Â Check out the 52 Quilt Block Pick up series from last year for ideas and tutorials!
