Now, let's talk quilts, shall we? This quilt is my 10th finish of the year. (!!!!)
Diane from Bee Square Fabrics asked me to design a quilt that would feature some of the gorgeous fabrics that she has in her shop. (She was so very fabulous to work with!!) This is what I came up with.
It is a zig zag quilt, but....BUT, it's made without piecing a single triangle. How nifty is that?
I used some of the leftover pieces of fabric from the front to add a strip of patchwork to the back. It's a little busy, but it made the backing just a bit wider than a normal width of fabric, which was just what I was after. How great is that elephant fabric? I LOVE it. And I love a pieced back, but you all already know that. :)
I used some awesome Jay McCarroll fabric for the binding. I love the little ants in it. (My kids do, too.) And the color. Mmm. Aqua!
It measures about 46" x 61".
I LOVE this quilt. I have been wanting to make a zig zag quilt forever, and I am very happy with the results. This color scheme is one of my favorites these days.
There is a tutorial on how to make the quilt here.
And the fabric info (should you be wondering the specifics) is listed in this post.
