My Zig Zag quilt

I'm always after ways to use up scraps....so I picked this pattern up, and was relieved suprised it only took me about 2 weeks (of non constant work)




I took some shots in the yard at work while on my lunch break- but couldn't resist this one on the
 measuring mat we use for the babies!



I had to get to get it finished in a hurry- I originally was planning to keep it, but when I heard my bestie in Sydney was re-admitted to a Psych hospital with her little bub, I knew it was better spent wrapping her up in my hugs!


I love you Nic, and think you're an amazing and brave woman! Get well soon!

The quilt is beautiful and your thought is too. I am happy to know that your friends baby can be with her in the hospital too. I would imagine a quilt like this with the lines of colour would be soothing to your friend. Cherrie
