Toddler Size Chevron Quilt Completed

Chevrons are everywhere these days.  I love the simplicity of the design and who doesn't like a little zigzag once in a while? :)  It also happens to be one of my favorite quilt designs to use.  So I was very happy to work on this small toddler quilt:


Sorry the picture quality this time isn't that great.  My flash on the camera was dying and it was just a frustrating experience trying to get the shots that I wanted.  Hopefully these are enough to see the details of the quilt.


For the quilting, I want with a straight line around the seams approach and added extra stitches between each seam.   This gives the whole quilt a nice chevron design.  I'm a sucker for bright binding and I am ecstatic that I had this beautiful stripe one from Riley Blake.  


On the back I went for a big bold orange floral print with a solids to match the quilt front.  I love how it turned out :).


The quilt to features 4 colorways - blue, orange, green and pinks.  Each has matching prints that coordinates with each other.


I am very happy about how this quilt turned out.  It has been washed and cuddly now for it's new home :).
