Sweet Dreams Chevrons

My most recent creation is a soft pink and gray quilt for a cute redheaded newborn baby girl named Ella Kate. 
 
I sewed three inch wide strips of pink prints to white and gray solids, then cut them into 5 1/2” squares. Set on point, they form a quick chevron pattern. Pink fabric with white polka dots was perfect for the back and binding, and cotton flannel made a light weight batting. Machine quilting with pink thread, a quarter inch from the seams, repeated the zig zag pattern. 
 
I washed, then fluffed the finished quilt in the dryer to give it that vintage soft crinkled look, just right for cuddling. 

 Sweet Dreams for a little sweetheart.
