(1) 3" square and (1) 2.5" square from each of nine different prints
(9) 3" squares and (9) 2.5" squares from a white solid
(1) 13" square for backing (not pictured)
(1) 2.5 x 52" strip for binding (not pictured)
Step 1: Pair each 3" print square with a 3" white square and place them right sides together. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line across each one. Sew 1/8" from either side of the line, and then cut the square in half along the line itself, making two half square triangle units. Press and trim each unit to make it a 2.5" square.
Step 2: Lay out your quilt using the photo above to guide you in making the chevron block. Each block has two of the half square triangle units, one print square, and one white square.
Step 3: Sew the blocks together. I like to sew the top and bottom pairs of each block together first, then sew the pairs together to make all the blocks. Then I sew the blocks across in rows of three, and then I join the rows. Doing it this way really helps me match up the seams for neat piecing.
Step 4: Quilt as desired, bind the edges, and you're done!
Thanks so much for letting me share this little quilt with you today, and my thanks to Amanda for letting me join in on a great blog hop!
