chevron baby quilts

I know I've posted about my chevron baby quilt wips, but I don't think I ever shared any completed photos on my blog. This week's challenge at The CSI Project is crafting with patterns which motivated me to finally share some pics.

Riley Blake Designs has the best chevron print fabric.  Because the chevron is printed the length of the fabric (parallel to the selvage), just one yard of their large chevron print make the perfect little baby quilt.

The chevron print also provides the perfect guide for quilting which makes for a fairly quick and easy baby gift.

wip Wednesday {5/1/13}

I've been a lot more motivated which means lots of wips and not a lot of finished projects! (I was feeling a little lazy last night so you're getting mostly instagram photos with some crazy filters.)

I am so happy my i spy charm swap filled up in less than a week. I figured I'd better do something with some of the i spy charms I already have so I'm making up a bunch of modernized disappearing 9 patch blocks using the i spy charms in the corners, a fun polka dot print in the center and white for the remaining squares.

I'm also making quilt blocks for Quilts for Boston. I've already made a wonky star blocks (because they're my favorite):

Last night I worked a simple heart block.

I love how it turned out.  I definitely need to make more of these.

And if my to-do list wasn't long enough, I checkout out a Tula Pink book from the library. I think my list just got a little longer!
