on how to make the chevron quilt and fabric destash
So, folks have been wondering how I made it, and if there's a tutorial. Well, I don't know if there's a tutorial for the way I made this one, and in fact, I don't recommend my method, since it involves sewing together long strips on the bias. Which can be a recipe for a ripply stretched out disaster:)
Edited to Add: I was reminded of my original inspiration for this method, which was this stunning quilt. If you read the comments, it will give you a few hints on how to use this method. And while you're at it, you could encourage Elizabeth to write a pattern:) I think it would sell like hot cakes!
The reason I used this method is that I liked the positioning of the seams, which is a pretty miniscule and crazy reason, and once the quilt was finished, I figured that it wouldn't have made much difference anyway. But, if you really want to know how I did it, just google 'making chevron fabric' or something like that, and you should come up with some info.
There are two other methods for making this look though, and I definitely recommend them. The first one would be using half square triangles, and you can find a tutorial here. Only thing I'd change is cutting those squares bigger, like maybe 6" square, to get a look similar to my quilt.
The other method is even simpler, and you'll find it over here. Again, I'd cut my strips wider, around 6", to get the chunkier look of my quilt.
and on a different note, I'm trying something different and destashing some fabrics in my Etsy shop. I'll be adding a few more bundles over the next few days, so if you're looking to pad your stash a bit, these are some good deals. and add in the 15% off coupon that I'm offering to my dear blog readers, (just type in BLUE15 in the provided spot at checkout)
and if I'm not careful I'm gonna buy this fabric back from myself:)
