Chevrons are Hot!

They can be made with half square triangles units.
Changing fabrics within the same color can be very interesting.
 



The rail fence method works well in two colors.
As you can see, the effectiveness is lost when using many different fabrics.







Then there's the method of sewing strip sets and cutting them on the 45 degree angle. 
Make two strip steps.


Align the 45 degree mark with the edge of the fabric and make your first cut.



 
Then the strips are then cut to the same width.      



 Cut your other strip set in the opposite direction.


 
TaDa!  Matching opposite cut strips makes the Chevron.
