Chevron Quilt Pattern

Click here to see the finished quilt.

I'm pretty excited about getting a niece or nephew here in town pretty soon.  My brother and his wife are adopting a baby very soon.  They are going to be awesome parents.  We are all really excited to meet this very special little person.  
I made my other nephew's quilt for him, and had so much fun doing it.  I wanted to be able to make something special for the this baby, so I asked to make the baby quilt.  I knew I wanted to do something funky, so I thought a chevron patterned quilt would be fun to try.  Since we are not sure if it's a boy or a girl, my sister in law went with fun gender neutral colors.  The room is painted a bright sunny yellow and the quilt is going to be mostly a fun aqua/teal blue and kelly green.  I threw in a splash of red and I'm considering doing the border in navy blue.  I still need to find one more fabric in the green color (a hard color to find because it's not lime green or sage green).  I'll post the fabrics I've found soon.  It might not turn out to have exactly the same number of squares as my pattern, but I feel like this a good start.  

I better get a move on with this quilt and my Dad's quilt as well.  Feel free to use or share this pattern.
