Sweet and Simple Chevron Quilt

Today I want to share with you another “Sweet and Simple” quilt.  Like the Hashtag Quilt I shared with you recently, this quilt would be a great quilt for a beginning quilter, or anyone who would like to put together a cute and quick baby quilt.  Chevrons have a classic charm that can go from sweet to sophisticated, and the chevron in this baby quilt is created using half square triangles.

I chose bright blue and orange, because I adore complementary colors, and this combo is one of my favorites.Sweet and Simple Chevron Detail View

Quilting that emphasizes the chevron design seemed appropriate for the quilt.  I kept the quilting simple in the orange and blue areas, but added extra lines in the white areas to create some additional texture.  I like the look of the quilting pattern on the back of the piece as well, but next time I’m going to seek out a cute print instead of using plain white.  What can I say?- I had it on hand!
