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.
