Zig Zag and Scrappy Strips

By November 19, 2008March 31st, 2020Blog

I put borders on the zig zag quilt. I really like how the black sets everything off. And I really like that I am that much closer to being ready for Christmas. I know N will love this quilt. I have some bright flannel he picked out a couple of months ago to go on the back. It should make a nice snugly quilt for watching movies.I’ll get batting for it tonight. My neighbor and I buy a bolt of batting at a time. We store it at her house since it is just her and her hubby. My kids have adopted them as grandparents since all their grandparents live 5+ hours away. I’ll wait for her to get home and get some for this quilt, the fan quilt and a Christmas quilt for my in laws. Boy was I insane when I decided to make all these quilts for Christmas. I don’t know but if I wasn’t I might be by the time Christmas gets here. Next I pulled out all my scraps that were cut into strips. Here is a lovely pile of them.

I am sewing them together for the next Christmas quilt. I am enjoying this. I just love scrappy quilts. I’ll show you tomorrow what I am doing with these strips.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a most wonderful day!

    Lovely quilt- I love black with brights. I think you’re brave doing lots of quilts for Christmas, but being up against it and bustling around is half the fun of the season. Good luck! I’m on a tree skirt at the mo. then after that it’s going to get very busy.

    That zig-zag quilt came out great! I agree that the black was a perfect choice to set it off, and the HST’s as the border makes the whole thing very lively.

    The zig-zags were great but that border really makes it pop. Lucky guy who will find that under the tree. Now waiting for the strips…….

    Would not be Christmas without a last minute, why did I try this project! That is what it is all about because you are really giving of YOU.
