Chevrons are a huge trend right now, and there are lots of ways to piece them together in quilting. From large-scale zigzags to tiny diamond insets, Craftsy quilters are hard at work to bring this trend home. Check out Pinterest’s Chevron Trending Page.

Chevron! By Craftsy members.

TOP LEFT Mochawildchild’s chevron quilt was created from a free pattern (check out her project page for more information.) She says, “If you want to make a larger quilt such as this twin sized one, make your strips wider – mine are about 6 inches wide. This goes together very quickly and easily!”
TOP RIGHT Quilter Joey Cole created this gorgeous chevron quilt from “a bunch of Scrap Fat Quarters and coordinating fabrics.” based on her boyfriend’s favorite color (orange.) Joey had the following advice for her fellow quilters, “…have fun with every step of the process, don’t stress out on hang ups. Just walk away and come back later.”
BOTTOM Check out Jackie Kunkel’s beautiful Diamonds Down Under quilt and read about what inspired her: “This was a design that I created for Quilt Magazine and it was published last spring! I have been designing and publishing patterns with them for 2.5 years and this is one of my favorite designs. Also, I am in love with the quilting that I did on this quilt. See the close up photos. I also teach this class.”  - Jackie Kunkel
