There are some bubba's coming up (great news for quilters in case you haven't heard it haha) and I wanted to try out some zig zags again (or 'chevrons' as they are also known). Looking back, I think my sewing has sure improved in 5years!
The fabrics are mainly from Spotlight's 'Organic' range (meterage on special at the moment). I used the Fat Quarters, mixed with some cream and purple Homespun, and some Sarah Fielke spots.
Either way you look at it, it looks good in my opinion!
I started it last weekend, and had the top finished in a weekend; I took it to Quilt Guild on Friday night, and thought I finished the quilting; I added more yesterday. I like the double effect now I've tried it.
I backed with chenille, mainly as I'm trying to use up some in the stash; this one is thicker than most, and it has a join in the middle; my batting it also pieces joined together, so I'm not very happy with the quilting over the thickness of the fabric. But it is so soft and will be great for a floor mat, and only us quilter's would notice I think (and probably politely saying nothing haha)
Mmm, zig zaggy!
Stay tuned- I've no idea if the intended recipient would like this, so I'm going to do a 2nd one in a different colourway, and offer a choice!
