I made this chevron blanket for my beautiful Sister-in-Law. The chevron print is actually a knit giving the blanket the feel of a comfortable t-shirt.
The reverse side is an Ultra Cuddle Fleece from Joann’s in a fun zebra print. It is so snuggly and warm.
I wasn’t sure how the knit would do as I’ve never used it for quilting, but I ended up really liking it. The blanket has a nice weight and feel and the knit gives it a more modern look in my opinion.
I did use a layer of cotton batting on the inside and I quilted it following the zig-zag pattern every 6 to 8 inches or so. The blanket is definitely on the larger size so it will be perfect for snuggling up in on the couch. I hate when blankets are too small to really be of use. To bind it, I simply wrapped the chevron knit to the fleece side and turned it under creating a nice edge and then stitching it down.
