A Zig Here, A Zag There

First, some patchwork!


I started this quilt earlier in the year!

I have long admired the strong graphic nature of zig zag quilts.

So I decided to make one, using this 'short-cut' version.  It is made from carefully placed rectangles, 

rather than the usual triangle method!



I wanted something bold and vibrant, so I gradually added to my stash.

Orange and turquoise!


The colors looked a little washed out here.  Maybe I should try taking some shots outside, if only we could manage a sunny day!

Anyway this has been languishing in the 'must finish' pile.

And now it is - QUILTED!



I am very pleased to say I have done all the machine quilting myself, using the KISS method!

Just need to get it bound!

It will be going to a new home soon as a wedding present for some work friends!



And now some play!

Maybe this is where my love for ZigZag quilts comes from!

Anyway-


Have a happy day!

  3. That's the 2nd zigzag quilt I've seen today. Must be a sign that I have to make one.
