Emma’s Closet

In April, I posted photos of the stages in making a chevron quilt.
This black and white quilt was made especially for my sister, Emma.
My brother helped me to name this quilt, Emma’s Closet, since Emma prefers
wearing only black and white clothing.
Emma is sweet, loving, creative, and absolutely the best!

Black and White Chevron

Pinterest is a resource for many ideas and patterns for quilts with the chevron design.
After studying a few of the online ideas and free patterns, I decided to make a chevron quilt with a black and white jelly roll I had purchased.

I had white fabric that I was using for a quilt that I decided I no longer wanted to make.
So, I cut the white fabric into 2.5 inch squares. (20)

I will be using a white on black polka dot fabric for the backing.

They will be used some how…
