I'm very excited to have my new quilt pattern 'iHeart Chevrons' up on Craftsy!

The pattern contains instructions and templates for 5 sizes! 24", 36", 48", 60" and 72". 

With this design you can easily add rows to fit any bed as well.  

This is a sample I made using 18 low volume fabrics and 3 reds.

 I was introduced to the Low Volume fabric by Chelsea @ Patch the Giraffe and Michelle @ From Bolts to Beauty.  They hosted a wonderful swap last year and I ended up with 56 of the cutest little low volume squares I've ever seen!

'iHeart Chevrons' contains Complete instructions, fabric needs, templates PLUS step-by-step tutorial on make multiple 1/2 square triangles and how to use the wonderful Bloc_Loc 1/2 Square Triangle rulers which saves you time and make the most accurate pieces!
