work in progress

This is a little quilt I'm calling 'lazy zig zag'.
Just a few more rows to go!
The fabric is a posy layer cake by Moda and a few grey fat quarters.
It's fun to be playing with fabric that reminds me of spring.
I'm so ready for it!
Even if it is still only January. :)

Lazy Zig Zag. Great name. I love working with colors right before the season comes in. Makes me happy.

Reminds me of those chevron afghans. Don't you think so?

Adam agrees with you. This morning he said, "I can't wait for summer."

Hope spring will be here tomorrow! It has been a cold winter so far for us. I love your purple prints.. I need some.. ... :) The dark print created the zig-zag is really interesting. Lately, I have try to work with solids and prints together. :)

Wow! That is one sharp quilt! Judging from other comments, we are all in need of some sunshine vitamin D and green grass! Blessings......

Sweet! I'm on the look out for some yellow gingham or check about 3/4 of an inch or so. It maybe a totally imaginary fabric, but I need it for a spring thing.

I need to lock myself up in my sewing room to play. even though there are no windows in there, the fabric makes me feel like there is sunshine around. I like what you did with the zigzags. Of course, I'm trying to figure out how you did it. I have my theories, you know. :)

It has purple, ok lavender, in it. Are you sure it's something you're making, or has someone else taken over Amanda Jean's body?
