striped chevrons quilt top (and tutorial)

If you would like to make a larger version of this quilt, or if you are looking for more detailed instructions that include fabric requirements, the pattern is now available on Craftsy and Etsy.  

I had some jelly roll leftovers sitting around and I needed to work on a project to help maintain my sanity, so I thought I'd put together a quick baby quilt.  And while I was at it, I thought I'd share a (really) rough tutorial.

1.  Choose four strips that are 2.5"xWOF.  I alternated white solid with prints, but you could do whatever you want.  Piece them together along the long sides.
2.  Take half of these and set them aside.
3.  With the other half, line up the 60 degree mark on your ruler with one of the seams, and cut along the left side of the ruler.  
 4.  You could make the chevrons any width, I made mine 5 inches, so I lined up the cut edge with the 5 inch mark on my ruler and the 60 degree mark with one of the seams.  Cut along the right edge.
5.  You end up with one of these.  Keep cutting until you run out of fabric.
 6.  Grab the other half of blocks that you had set aside and cut them the opposite direction.
Piece your diamond shaped pieces into columns and then sew the columns together.  Trim along the top and bottom so that you have a straight edge (I didn't completely trim mine since I am going to trim again after I quilt it).
This was surprisingly quick and is jelly roll friendly.  And it definitely helped my sanity.

  20. Hi Erica,

    Love this quilt, but I had one question. You said to divide the strips in half, but it appears from the photo that 60% of the strips are going in one direction & 40% are going in the other. Could you please explain? Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is a very sweet pattern, but am I understanding this correctly that it requires only 4 jelly roll strips and 4 solid strips to make the whole quilt?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Did this take an entire jelly roll and if not, how many strips did you end up using of the patterned fabric? I have a jelly roll that is only 30 strips and I'm trying to find a pattern to use with it.

    Love this quilt! Thanks for the tutorial! :D

  30. This is probably a really stupid question, but what does the "WOF" mean in this phrase: Choose four strips that are 2.5"xWOF

  34. I am a new quilter. This my second quilt. I have made all the striped chevron blocks. I am having trouble trying to sew the blocks in a column. When I sew two together the seams do not match. What am I doing wrong?

    Hoping you have an answer

    Thank You

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The seams need to cross 1/4" down from the top. One tip that might help is inserting a pin 1/4" down and making sure it goes through both seams. Make sure to place a pin each time there are seams to match. I hope that helps!

      Delete
  35. Rlaugustan: I found this quilt very deceptive. It's definitely not as easy as it looks. I, too, struggled to get the seams to match. I pinned and basted, and then ripped it out & tried again. I was successful in the end, but it was very slow going, and by the time I finished, I never wanted to see it again, and donated the to to Quilts for Kids.

    If someone has a "secret" to getting the seams to match on the first try, I'd really like to heat it!

    1. I'm so sorry you had trouble! The seams need to cross 1/4" from the top and using lots of pins helps.

Analysis of molecular variation, anchovas, analysis of rhythmic variation, ANOVA simulations, mixed design ANOVA, and so on are various processes to be studied.

    Due to the lack of proper guidance and proper knowledge, these aspects become problematic. These factors seek out ANOVA homework assistance, and so they go for many online and offline methods that can provide them results in time.
