Each stripe uses one fat quarter of fabric. Each fat quarter is cut into twelve nickel (5") squares. Two squares are then made into two half square triangle blocks and sewn together to make the zigzag or chevron pattern. This is how one chevron block gets sewn together-
This is one quilt I will likely make several times because it is fast and easy and uses lots of fat quarters. I can hardly wait to see what a different set of fabrics will look like!
