    Chevron Quilt

    We are converting our son's toddler bed into a "big boy bed" and I want to make a chevron quilt to match his room. His room colors are navy blue, light blue, and white with sailboats (see picture.) I'm doing a little preshopping and was wondering if anyone knew of any layer cakes that would go with his room. I don't care about it matching perfectly; anything with those colors will work! Thank y'all so much!

    There is this one that I bought. Some fabrics wern't included so I would be careful of that, I bought a 10'' ruler to make my own cakes because with this one I was disappointed.

      You could also do just solid white and solid blue for a boys room. Cute idea.

          Wow! Is the bedding in the photo the same stuff you are using? I ask because I ripped apart the exact same bumper pad a few months ago to make a memory quilt for my cousin. The sailboat is on the upper right, and two of the plaids are bordering blocks on the left. http://pinterest.com/pin/77405687316409465/

          If you're interested, I could send you a few of the sailboats. The ones I have are corduroy.

          I'm still working on the memory quilt....shhh.

            I am going to make a chevron quilt using the Harmony line of fabric, there is a new line out called seascapes that would look lovely to.

                Yes, that's his bedding! We have a 10 month old as well that is current using the crib bedding, so I can't use any of it in the quilt. I would love a few of the sailboats! Just let me know how much I owe you. Thank you so much!

                  @Shorte85- I have considered this option as well. If I can't find any prints this is probably the way I'll go. I wish I could find a light blue layer cake as well. With a 2 1/2 year old and a 10 month old, finding time to cut squares is hard to do!

                      Seascapes looks just about perfect! Now to find it in a layer cake. Thank y'all for the suggestions!
