    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.

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!

    Thanks for the link. I think I like your's best. I think the one solid color makes a more interesting design. This one looks easy, will be giving it a try. Thanks again.

    That looks like a very easy quilt to make. Is the machine you're using a Singer 201 or 66?
