blue bunny zig zag quilt.

This is the zig zag quilt that started it all. Believe it or not, this is the first zig zag quilt that I made, I completed it over a year ago. Yeah...I'm that bad! I am just now getting around to sharing it.

I was inspired by Rebekah's quilt, take a look it's super cute. You know I love the zig zag pattern...it's a nice way to introduce a touch of pattern into a simple design. I love the modern look of the solid zigs too (also on my list of things to make).


A few vintage reproduction fabrics.

A patchwork binding.


Thanks for stopping..
enjoy your weekend!

What a perfect amount of zig zags! This quilt is so simple and sweet.

I just mastered half square triangle trimming (unfortunately AFTER I made a zig zag quilt) so I'm dying to make another one.

Wow, this quilt is really amazing! I love the simplicity of it, and I love the fabrics you put together for the zigs and the zags. That binding ROCKS!

It's beautiful! I love the soft blues.

I'm glad I gave that big zig quilt Jon because I don't know that I have another zig zag quilt in me, especially with all of those parallel zigs.

You are amazing to make so many zig zag quilts.

Those bunnies are adorable! I still have a zigzag halloween quilt top from last year, waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. I really need to get to that! Love this quilt, the colors are so calming. Very nice!

Love it! I seriously want to know how you whip up quilts so fast!?! Mine only took a month! And what with all the hand-sewing of the binding... lordy, lordy! Love your patchwork binding.
