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.
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!
