Chevron baby quilt

We fell in love with Aneela Hooey’s latest fabric range Posy and wanted to make something modern that would show the lovely colours and patterns well.
See the Aneela Hooey’s Posy range
We got our inspiration from something we found on Pinterest and we just loved the idea.
This is a great cot size - Finished quilt size 85cm x 120cm ( 33.5” x 51” )
We used 12 different fabrics from the range or you could use a jelly roll.
Join strips together lengthwise with a quarter inch seam.
One of your strips is joined to the previous fabric in the colour order and the same fabric strip is joined to the next fabric in the colour order.
Then you will need to cut them into 4.5” strips.
Once you have sewn all your blocks together vertically and then all the rows, you can trim off the edges to make a rectangle. Then put together with your wadding and backing, quilt and bind! We quilted this one with vertical lines to keep with the theme but there are a world of possibilities for quilting.
This was such a lovely quilt to make :)
It had just the right amount of challenge and lots of satisfying ‘Ooh’s and Aah’s’ when we’d finished.
