CutieQ Cards n Crafts – Chevron Quilt Part 1
Posted July 14, 2015on:
I’m doing it again.
I’m making a quilt.
This time, I’m making a traditional quilt, not a rag quilt.
There is A LOT that I don’t know about making a quilt and I probably should have taken a real class at a fabric store, but I feel like I’ve watched enough Youtube videos that I just might be able to pull this off..
When I first got to Joann’s Fabric store, I was overwhelmed. How much fabric will I buy for the quilt top? How much batting will I need? What about the backing fabric and the binding?! I was going a bit crazy and overwhelmed with the entire process that I almost felt like giving up.
I left the store that day feeling very discouraged about the whole thing. However, I still wanted to do the quilt.
So, I decided to just take things one step at a time.
I’m winging it…
I went back to the store and I bought what I needed for the quilt top only.
I bought half a yard of three different pink fabrics and half a yard of three different blue fabrics. I also bought 2 yards of white fabric. I’m in the process of cutting the fabric into 5 inch squares, and then cutting them on the diagonal to make triangles.
Cutting the fabric is taking me a while since I can only do this at night when the kids are asleep. I’m currently working on cutting the white fabric into the triangles, so I’m almost done. I can’t wait to sew the white and patterned fabric triangles together to make some fun squares!
