Chevron Points - The Baby One

My latest Michael Miller project has had me working with these sweet, sweet baby prints from their To the Moon and Back collection. I love the soft grays and yellows. When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, gray and other neutral colors featured heavily in her nursery. I would have LOVED this collection to make her a baby quilt back then.

I wanted to feature the prints in a quilt so I chose my Chevron Points pattern that was published in Make Modern magazine. In the original pattern, each side of the chevrons were a different fabric. In this version, I made each chevron out of one print. I love the simplicity of this version. Writing this pattern in multiple sizes in on my to-do list for next year, and I definitely plan on including this design variation.

I went with a zig zag stitch spaced a little more than an inch apart for quilting. I thought the zig zag would be an appropriate complement to the chevrons. It is quick, easy, and perfect for a baby quilt.

The backing is my favorite print in the collection. These sweet yellow and gray rainbows are just perfect. I used a darker gray polka dot print to bind.
