It makes use of only ONE jelly roll (and solid yardage) for a full size quilt!
I ended up doing chevron ''straight line'' stitching on my sewing machine for the quilting. WOW, was that a task. One of the most labor intensive quilting projects I have done yet. SO much pushing and pulling of the quilt through the machine, but it was worth it in the end!
I am going to share with you today what I did with the leftovers from cutting the blocks from the Double Chevron quilt. You will have two triangle-ish shaped strip tube sections leftover. First, I made sure each end was trimmed off square:
Then, opened up the tubes on the short side:
Then, pressed seams in opposing directions to put together to make another full block!
You can trim them to the same size as your full size quilt and add to it to make a much larger quilt - or trim them and use them for a baby quilt!
I haven't gotten around to picking a backing/binding for this one yet. I think I have enough leftovers from the full size quilt for more than half of the backing, but not quite enough.....
This is a very lovely and calm quilt. Like how you used the leftovers.ReplyDelete
