Chevron Strip Quilt DIY
I have been making quilts since college. I think my first quilt attempt was for my boyfriend, Jim for Christmas 1999. I know, a big undertaking right before the world was supposed to end for Y2K, right? Anyway, in the last 14 years, I've made dozens of quilts in varying shapes and sizes and I've never been able to do the binding right until now. I found this blog post by Red Pepper Quilts that does a fantastic job explaining how to perfectly machine quilt binding. It worked perfectly. I highly recommend it.
Here is my original strip quilt tutorial if you'd like to make one for yourself. I'm currently working on a fairy quilt for Elsie and a football field quilt for Logan...so I'll have a few more ideas to share this summer.
