 4″ WOF (width of fabric) Strips in 3 Colors.
Half of these are the background color.
4 – 4″ Strips Sewn Together in two pairs.
One background color in each pair.
 2 pairs of strips sewn together on both edges creating a tube,
 alternating the background color.
Use the 45 degree line on a 15″ square ruler to cut your blocks.
The 45 degree line is along the seamline on the blue strip (top of tube).
 Cut along the right edge of the ruler.
 Alternate the 45 degree line to the opposite seam edge of the tube (bottom edge)
and make your cut on the right edge of the ruler.
Open up your blocks and it’s a beautiful sight 🙂
Each WOF tube will make 5 – 10″ blocks
The Traditional Chevron
The Radiating Chevron
The Process:
 Sew blocks into vertical strips.
 Sew vertical strips into pairs.
 Sew the pairs together.
 The blocks are sewn together.
 When adding your borders the method is important.
The quilt top will have bias edges and they have to be set in properly.
Add an 8″ border using this method, easing the bias edges into the border.
