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!”
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.”

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.
