2014 Begins with Double Chevrons

Posted by on January 1, 2014 in housekeeping | 3 comments

DSCN5427_2This month we are making a 7 by 14 inch (finished size) Double Chevron block using white (a solid or white-on-white print) and a purple, brown or gray fabric of your choice. Here are two of mine.

The block pattern directions are here:

Double Chevron Quilt Block

Because these blocks are larger, you can make a maximum of 6 blocks for chances in the drawing at the end of the month.  As always, if you like, you can make more and donate them to the pot. If you make multiple blocks, you may use the white fabric in all your blocks, but each must be made with a unique second fabric.




Add the tag chevron to all your blog posts about this block. The category should be blocks when you are posting photos of your blocks to enter them in the drawing; use the category sent and received when you are posting about mailing or receiving blocks; and the category show and tell to share projects you make from this block (whether they are lotto blocks or blocks you make for yourself.


The Virtual Quilt


The blocks in this month’s virtual quilt were made by sneak peelers, Belinda, Charlene, Debbie, Ellen, Gwen, Jo, Julie, Kate, Kathie, Laurina, Margaret, MB, Peggy, Sharon and Vivi. While you likely would arrange them differently, this will give you an idea of how a scrappy bunch of these blocks will look together.

Differences in lighting make some of the whites seem less white and some of the purples seem blue  but I think you can still get an idea of how a quilt made from these blocks might look.

You can see the full-size versions of the virtual blocks in my Flickr photo set Double Chevron Quilt Blocks.

Don’t forget that even if you have mailed a photo of your blocks for the virtual quilt, you must create a post and share the photo in order to be included in the drawing this month or to have your blocks added to the pot (if you don’t want to be included in the drawing).



  1. Wow, what a great lot of chevrons. They look great everyone. Well done.

    • I know that all those blocks are going to look even better in person 😉

  2. Terrific block! I look forward to trying it.
