    Baby Chevron Quilt

    I recently finished this baby quilt for my great nephew that was just born. The blocks are two rectangles sewn together to make a square instead of triangles. It certainly threw my brain for a tizzy putting it together though! I think I do better with horizontal and vertical rows rather than diagonal ones..... The back was made with left over fabric from the front.

    Such beautiful colors. My brain is easily thrown into a tizzy. It is a neat way to make a chevron without a bias edge.

    ​Great chevron quilt! I love blue and yellow combos and the rectangles are so much easier then bias edge triangles!

    Nicely done. I did a chevron quilt just like yours and I am trying to get it quilted. Just too hot out here to quilt a flannel quilt!!

    Very nice. What is the size of the square? I like the idea of no bias edges.

    Nicely done. I tried the same thing on a much small scale once, just table runner size. My brain had the hardest time with that one too. I made some boo boos in mine!
