WIP: Twin Chevron Quilts


This past week I’ve started working on two twin size quilts.  They’re for a custom order, and I just love the fabrics that were chosen.  The fronts are a basic chevron, and the backing fabric is the cute tree print with a strip of the pink down the back.  They’re for two sisters.


I’ve finally finished the cutting and pressing—there are 360 of these babies ready to go.  Now, I just have to sew them all together to finish out the tops.  That should go more quickly than the half-square triangles…I’d forgotten how long these take to cut and press.

I’m hoping to get the tops sewn together by the end of the week and then baste the quilts together over the weekend.  The basting is always easier when I have my husband around to help me move the dining room table so I have a large floor space.  I’m happy with my progress so far—can’t wait to see how they look once they’re finished!


Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. Im a huge triangle lover, but I totally hate trimming them,
    totally in love with your background fabric

      I’m with you– the trimming is the worst. I did cut these 1/8″ smaller, so there shouldn’t be any fabric to trim– just those pesky corners!

  2. Oh that is a pretty backing fabric!

  3. That’s a lot of HSTs! But the lovely fabrics must help with all that work. Lucky little girls!

  4. Lovely fabrics. The tree one is awesome. I am a big fan of HST.
