This is section 2 of Anne’s blanket project, and these bands border the central medallion.
These bands are made by using strips of each of the coloured fabrics, which are then strip pieced; cut on the 45degree angle with mirror images – all of which are easy to do if you just follow Anne’s instructions.
She helps you with the 45degree angle – which is marked on rotary cutting rulers – (and also on your mat incidentally!); she has a great tip about remembering to check that angle every few cuts, just to keep it accurate – slither trimming is allowed and indeed expected – and later on you need to know about the sticking out ears too!
She reminds you of the sewing sequence – and how to avoid a rainbow piece of fabric (nothing to do with the colours!) and you can see a short workshop from Valerie on this by clicking here:
In order to complete these two bands, you need to have your KEY measurement – so the central medallion also needs to have been completed to provide you with this.
TIP: of course making chevron bands would be useful for use in other quilts to great effect perhaps as borders.
Anne has sewn all of her life, prolifically for the last 25 years. She works across a wide range of patchwork and appliqué techniques and designs — from the Navajo blanket quilt that includes simple and advance techniques to simple cushion designs.
