Chevron (zig zag) quilt

I actually finished this quilt a while ago but hadn't been out to take photos. December and January were nearly snow-free and unseasonably warm. So of course I waited until February when it's cold and there's 6 inches of snow on the ground to take pictures.

This quilt was SO simple. Sew a bunch of strips together, cut into squares, twist and sew back together! What? That's not enough for you to make one too? Check out Bee Square's tutorial.

I even made giant chevrons on the back using vintage sheets.

Instead of traditional binding, I used giant ric rac from Pick Your Plum. Have you signed up for PYP yet? It's 1 deal per day, all super affordable crafting/sewing/creative supplies. I love it!

For fabric, I used 11 different prints from Ruby Heirloom by Joel Dewberry.


  1. way cute 'binding'! I love how simple you made chevorns! This looks beautiful!

  2. Chevrons are an all-time favourite and your quilt is GORGEOUS! Love it.
