Today's tutorial: Chevron mini quilt
We can't get enough of chevrons! Make a mini quilt using four Marblehead prints and simple half-square triangles.
- 4 Marblehead fat quarters: teal, orange, lime, and light blue
- 5/8 yard backing fabric
- 1/4 yard binding fabric
- 20" square of batting
- Fabric marking pen
From each of the teal and orange prints:
Twelve 4" squares
From each of the lime and light blue prints:
Six 4" squares
Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of all the orange squares, 3 light blue squares, and 3 green squares.
Pair a marked square right sides together with a green square. Stitch 1/4" on either side of the marked line.
Cut apart on the drawn line and press both HST units open.
Make 6 orange/light blue units, 12 orange/teal units, 6 light blue/teal units, 6 teal/green units, and 6 orange/green units.
Trim each unit to measure 3-1/2" square.
Lay out the HSTs into a chevron pattern as shown.
Join the HSTs into rows.
Layer the backing right side down, batting, and quilt top. Baste and machine quilt as desired. This quilt is topstitched 1/4" on each side of the zigzag seams.
Bind the quilt using two 2-1/4" x 42"strips. You're done!
