ashley and her ladies in waiting (sisters and mom).
the quilt i made for ashley.
WHAT TO CUT:
This quilt is 6 half-square-triangle blocks across x 8 hst blocks down. Which means I cut 48 10" squares total: 24 white, 18 gray, 6 yellow.
After consulting with my sister abby and my mom and mark, we decided this would not be too "Charlie Brown" so i went ahead with my idea. And even if it was, Charlie Brown wouldn't be so bad. My sister-in-law thought it looked kind of nautical. I'm good with that too.
The colors are coal gray and corn yellow.
*2.7.13 Update. I used to have a sidebar link to Park City Girl's tutorial, but it is no longer active. So here is another tutorial and a free pattern from Riley Blake Designs, also using half square triangles. I love this method for chevrons, and many other quilting layouts. See other quilts I've made with h.s.t. here and here.
