Have you noticed that suddenly chevrons are everywhere? This trend can be very easily be made into a quilt! There are so many color scheme possibilities, it’s a fun pattern to play around with. Here are a few examples:
|This-n-that; a little crafting|
|Sew It Pretty by Krista Shaffer|
|Chevron Mendocino Quilt by “Marmy”|
A half-square triangle is the only block you need. What great first quilt for a beginner quilter…or a great gift to make for a younger recipient.
Pick a few favorite colors, or a lot. Either way, it looks great. With EQ7 you can use the Random Recolor Tool and with a click of the mouse the quilt above turns into color combinations you may not have thought of otherwise. Like these:
In EQ7, to make a gradient, click the Colors Tab. Choose a color and right click on it. Click Add Shades and Tints.
You can download the EQ7 project if you want, but it’s so easy you might not need to!
