First Zig, Then Zag

Here are the long-promised pictures of my finished Zig Zag Quilt. LOVED the tutorial by Crazy Mom Quilts for the Bee Square Blog. Print fabric is by Jessica Levitt Timber. Solid is Kona Snow. 

After much agonizing, I pieced the back using large pieces of fabric with lots of white in between. I must say I'm smitten with how it looks. 

Do you see the little stow-away peeking around the quilt? 

The quilting turned out nicely - adore the crinkle-cozy effect. 

Giving this quilt as a birthday gift - sending love and warmth with it to it's new owner. 

This is my 99th post, making the next one the big 100. We should do something special to celebrate. Ideas?

  5. Great podcast. I like the idea of getting organized early for Christmas. Your zigzag quilt is great. It turned out really nice. Your daughter is such cutie too. Congratulations on 100 posts! WhooHoo! I don't have any ideas right now, but if I come up with one, I'll let you know. Thanks!

  6. Hi Sarah,
    I've been enjoying your podcasts and actually went to the iTunes store to write a review but couldn't remember the specific segment I wanted to mention. I could say don't get to age 60+ but I'm not unhappy to be here and hope that you will be here too, someday. This absent-mindedness is just frustrating! I listened to episodes 6, 7, 8 today and yesterday and just downloaded them again so iTunes will hear from me eventually.
    love the Zigzag quilt. keep on with the podcasts.
