Baby HST Chevron Quilt

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 :)
Simple Simon!

The back is grey minky for extra cuddly softness :)

I bound it with charcoal grey that matches the minky.


  1. So cute! I love how you made the top and bottom chevrons with white, so the border gets all chevron-y too. Very cute!

  2. Minky on the back was a great choice!
