Modern Chevron Patchwork Quilt

It's Quilty Box time! I received a super collection of cool gear in this month's Quilty Box that was selected by Vanessa Wilson, The Crafty Gemini. It included some precut printed fabrics, beautiful threads, and a funky angle slicing ruler!

I really wanted to keep my project simple and quick because it's only one day until Thanksgiving and definitely not a time to take on something complicated and fussy. I kept the pieces big, cuts simple, and put together a Modern Chevron patchwork quilt that would be the perfect throw quilt for the couch.

Modern Chevron Patchwork Quilt Pattern

I used 18 prints from the Birds & Bees precut layer cake pack (precut 10 inch squares) and 18 10-inch squares of white fabric to make 36 blocks.

 I spent a lot of time playing around with the layout of this quilt and I think there are MANY unique possibilities using the 10" slicer ruler. I liked this chevron pattern because it reminded me of the funky chevron crocheted blankets I grew up with, only this patchwork version was MUCH easier and faster to create.

  1. Super I love modern. OK...I bit the bullet so to speak and subscribed! I've been toying with the idea since first seeing these Quilty Box things-but you curating pushed me over the edge. Plus a little guilt resolution for ME, because sometimes it's worth it to invest in my joy. THANK You "Sew" very much Leah!

  2. Love this quilt Leah! Another great use of Vanessa's 10" slicer. I'm going to make a baby quilt & table runner with the slicer. Can't wait to get your December Quilty box! Happy quilting! ♡
