Zigzag quilt


I finished the zigzag quilt for my sister’s friend three weeks ago. I am so fortunate to have had my daughter help me with the design and placement of fabrics. The zigzag design is one of my favourites. Once I got going it went together quickly but it was a slow start. My sister told me that it was a big hit at the baby shower which made me very happy.

Design Wall Monday - Pretty in Pink



My daughter is making me a quilt and she worked on it today. It is a similar pattern to one that she made a few years ago for herself. Most of the fabric came from a LQS who hosts a Christmas in July usually each year. They have bins of fabrics that you can stuff into bags and these fabrics came from ones that my daughter picked out from those bins. It is great to watch her progress and increased aptitude with quilting. I really like her design eye. She got most of the blocks done today. She is going to lay it out next and see if I want it bigger.  I am looking forward to getting to cuddle under this, hopefully soon.

Friday Night Sew In - Churn Dash and Stars

 I spent my Friday Night Sew In putting on and starting to hand sew the binding for my Churn Dash and Stars quilt. It has been a long term, work on it when I need a break from another quilt, quilt. I am happy that now it is coming to fruition.
