Use the popular color combination of pink and grey for your chevron using scrap fabric, if you have it. The design calls for seven different fabrics which makes this quilt a perfect scrap buster project. Decide which fabric you have the most of, as that piece can be used to create three lines of chevrons.

The majority fabric can be the anchor color of the quilt, with the remaining prints as co-ordinates. The feature quilt shows a mix of pinks and greys, that always creates a soft feel just right for a baby girl. When choosing prints, I always fold my fabrics and lay them out next to each other since fabric changes when put next to another fabric.

The free chevron pattern provided uses a very popular color combination of pink and grey chevron using any mix of prints. I almost always believe that pink and white polka dots were designed just for baby girl quilts. Use any combination of prints however with the addition of polka dots you’re sure to capture a girlie result.

Christine has a super easy tutorial for this chevron baby quilt where she assembles the chevrons in blocks instead of rows. A neat idea that helps to avoid stretching the fabric by sewing long rows together. Continue to assemble blocks adding rows to make the quilt larger.
