    Your Opinion please ....

    I want to make a crib size baby quilt ( 45 X 60 ) using the Chevron Striped pattern. The pattern I have uses 12 inch blocks but to me this stripe seens too large for a baby quilt. Should I reduce the size of the blocks and if so, what size block do you suggest?
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You can always reduce the squares/triangles to 10-8 " or just google.

    I think reducing the size would work well for a baby quilt. Also make sure that you don't end up with half a chevron, that just bugs me. I like the sides of a chevron quilt to end the same way the row started. With one exception to the rule that adds a " head" at one end to make worms.

    I agree - that would be large for a baby quilt. Here are a few links that might help:

    Good luck and be sure to let us see the finished product!!
