    FREE Forties Chevron quilt pattern, easy, scrappy with brights and solids, 1 block

    Here's a link for a free pretty Forties Chevron quilt pattern. It's an easy one-block design, with just a large (4 7/8") half-square triangle, then cleverly arranged to form chevron design.

    I grabbed up some of my scraps, and started a little baby quilt for my niece. Here's what I've got so far. (I only had pink solid on hand, so mine is a variation of the pattern. It's too hard for me to wait when I'm in the mood to sew!)

    What a fun, quick and pretty quilt this will make. Thank you for sharing this link.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I adore chevrons and I just got a big bundle of repro fabrics!! Guess what I'm gonna do???

    ETA: I love your fabrics, and I may use a cream muslin to tie in all my repros. I think a single solid looks really good!

    Oh, this is a great way to use those wonderful '30s and '40s fabrics. Your quilt so far is just charming!
