Chevron Chenille Quilt

I have been eyeing up the Chevron Chenille Quilt tutorial over at Aesthetic Nest for a while now, when my guild asked if I would be willing to do a demo on cutting Chenille. I agreed and hurried to get this done so I could have it as an example.

I think this is a very chic modern blanket that would make a great baby shower gift! I love the yellow and grey/block combination which is also in style right now.

I love how the yellow binding looks on the back of the blanket! I did a non-biased (because I don't like how chevron looks when cut on the bias) double fold binding, where she used a different binding in her tutorial. 

I think this is the kind of thing that you make once and that's it. sewing all the chevrons was tedious but not terrible, but cutting them all by hand was terrible! I love the affect but I think now that I can say I made one I'll do the tradition biased chenille from now on so I can use the chenille cutter and not have to sew all those pivots and valleys!
