Scrappy Chevron

Scrappy Chevron Quilt

It’s finished!  It only took a year and a half but it’s done.  :)  My Mom started this quilt and we worked on it slowly when I’d visit…now that its done I’m not sure why we didn’t finish it sooner!

Scrappy Chevron Quilt, Cluck Cluck Sew

All those different prints look like a big fat mess together until you pair them with the solid color chevrons.  The solids pull everything together so nicely. 

You can find a free pattern for this quilt here.

Cluck Cluck Sew, Chevron Scrap Quilt

The backing and binding are from her stash.  We made this a tad smaller than the inspiration pattern so it’s a generous throw size.

Backing Chevron Scrap Quilt

I like making quilts with my Mom because she does all the work.  Now that we live just down the road hopefully there will be many more!

Pin It!

What a wonderful quilt -- I like the doing it together thing. I imagine it will bring back lots of memories later on. I love your work.

Great quilt! On my list of things to do: make at least one quilt from each Cluck Cluck Sew pattern! Yep, I like them THAT much!

I'm kind of obsessed with chevron - and this is such a fun variation!

It looks amazing and I'm not one who is big on chevron... but the quilt you made with your mom is beautiful. Thanks for sharing!!

I LOVE the colors!!! Thanks for showing this. I was looking for inspiration for my next quilt. I will totally study your color combos.

trish said...

I swear that is on my list of quilts to make!! :o) Are you all settled in? How wonderful to be back "home". I hope it is in the cards for me to move back "home" to the north west coast. I miss the ocean something fierce! And the good food. And no humidity. And being outdoors more. :o)

Sarah said...

I love this quilt but how special it must be that you did it together. I just made some coasters using your instructions for the chevron block. This makes me want to jump in head first to a quilt.

So wonderful but I'm betting the time you get to spend together is the best part.
