Chevrony quilt

Have a stack of fat quarters that you would like to use? My Chevrony quilt is the perfect project for using fat quarters.  It uses sixteen! The inspiration for this quilt is the floral fabric in the center of the quilt.  I had a fat quarter of it and two coordinating fabrics that I wanted to use.  One coordinate didn't work out but I pulled the other fabrics from my stash with the exception of another fat quarter of the inspiration fabric and one of the coordinates and 3/8 yard of the bright green fabric. I only needed the additional fabric to get the effect I wanted.

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!
