We have friends who are bringing a brand new little girl into the world today. We’re waiting on pins and needles for the announcement!
You might remember her older brother’s quilt from a while back. His mom had his first birthday photos taken with it. Yeah, I might have blushed a little over that.
There was no way I wasn’t making a quilt for his new sister too. I happened to see her mom the day I was going to the fabric store and found out the baby’s room would be pink and brown. I already had a design in mind, and the color scheme worked with it perfectly.
To make the chevron pattern, I cut 6 1/2” squares (15 pink, 18 floral, 15 brown), then cut each of those in half diagonally.
I sewed them together following this pattern:
I used a soft Minkee-like fabric for the back, with a layer of cotton batting between.
Because I loved the backing so much (I mean, have you FELT this stuff?!?) I used a cheater method with it to bind the quilt. Simply cut the backing larger than the top, fold it over the edge of the top and stitch. To make it wider, I cut the batting a bit larger than the quilt top as well.
I love how it came out a little girly, but modern. Now I can’t wait to meet the little girl who’ll be using it!
