the infamous zig zag quilt



{a las, the infamous zig zag quilt. stripes of blue, green and white.}



If you are new to quilting, this is the quilt for you. If you have a one year old who likes to toss quilt squares around while you are doing quilting yoga (aka: laying out many, many squares), you might want to lay this out during sleeping hours.
Did I tell you how much I love fabricdepot.com? This quilt did not require a single trip to the fabric store. I even used batting from a garage sale! Thanks to Bend the Rules, I never prewash my
quilting fabric. This leads me to my favorite part of making a quilt. I love to pull the quilt out of the dryer, finding all of the cute puckering magic from the fabric shrinking that gives it that vintage feel. Sigh.

I can't believe that I neglected to give Amanda credit for this beautiful pattern, even if it did take me 3 months to make it a reality! (beautiful and easy....a winning combination!)

Sarah,

Love the quilt. I am just finishing up one for Cali - she picked out the pattern and fabric and it's turning out great. Where did you get your pattern and fabric for the zig zag one - love it! Need to add it to my list of To Makes! ALso wondering - are you doing your own quilting on your machine or having it done by someone with a longarm? It looks great!
