Triangles on a Roll Tutorial: Braided Chevron


                    
Braided Chevron is a quilt made of lengths of braids.  The braids are easily made using Sew and Fold on a Roll.  The size of the quilt simply depends on how large you need it to be.  The number of braids also depends upon the desired width of the quilt.  The measurements in this pattern make the braid 6" finished width.

STEP ONE:
Begin with a triangle and cuts of fabric as noted on the Sew and Fold paper.  For example, the triangle could be cut from a square measuring 3 7/8" cut diagonally.  The strips would be cut 1  5/8" by 1".
