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:

A gradient chevron quilt could be a very cute and modern baby quilt.

In EQ7, to make a gradient, click the Colors Tab. Choose a color and right click on it. Click Add Shades and Tints.

For the sports lover, make a it in their team’s colors. It would also work for school colors.

An easy and fun Christmas quilt!

You can download the EQ7 project if you want, but it’s so easy you might not need to!
