Another Baby Chevron!

This has been a popular pattern in my Etsy shop and I just love the colours for a baby girl. If you want to make your own, the tutorial can be found here: http://www.magpiequilts.com/2013/01/pink-chevron-quilt-tutorial.html

The beautiful Minky backing flannel was bought last summer while on a road trip with my mom at a little quilt shop in the town of Vegreville. This prairie town is best know as the home of the giant Easter egg.

The chevrons are a variety of Kona cottons in coordinating colours - two shades of coral, and two shades of turquoise, a light gray and white.

Quilting is in the ditch (along the seam lines) of the chevrons. I've seen some lovely quilting on chevron quilts, but I like to keep it simple when I have Minky on the back to keep the soft drape of the fabric.

I still have enough Minky to make another baby quilt and I've got a few ideas to change up the front using the same colours, but with a different pattern.
