Our friends had a sweet little baby boy a few months ago,
and doesn't every baby need a darling quilt.
I have been hoarding this cute little stack of fabric since the beginning of the year.
The fabric came in the Fat Quarter Grab Bag I bought back in February. Blogged about HERE.
I was thinking that it might be perfect for the baby my sister is expecting, but she is having a GIRL!!! :)
I also have been wanting to make a chevron quilt out of half square triangles :)
Here is a mini tutorial of how I did it :)
I used THIS method to make the half square triangles.
I used 5.5" blocks to make my hst's.
Two 5.5" blocks make four 3.5" hst's.
For this quilt I used 12 green 5.5" squares,
18 blue 5.5" squares,
7 white 5.5" squares,
37 assorted coordinating print 5.5" squares,
and four white 2.5" by wof strips.
Arrange your hst's in a 12x12 arrangement that make the chevron pattern.
I chose to sew each row one by one.
Then pressed the seams of each row in opposite directions.
...then I sewed the rows together... pressed and added the white border :)
The back is grey minky for extra cuddly softness :)
I bound it with charcoal grey that matches the minky.
