Lovin' the ZigZag

I've seen a lot of zigzag quilts on various blogs and they always look so fresh, fun, and happy. So, it's been a pattern that I've been wanting to try; I guess it was on my quilting bucket list.

My Mom found a charm pack of Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille that I absolutely adore! I thought it would be perfect for trying out this technique.

I thought about going smaller with my HST's, but decided that I wanted the ease of working with the squares that come in the charm pack rather than cutting smaller. I'm glad I did. I think it came out just right for what I was trying to do.

I still need to add borders. I had some yellow and gray fabrics that just didn't fit with the rest of the zigzags. I want to make the quilt top a little bigger so I am going to use the leftover triangles to create some corner framing and then finish it off with some more white.

I am excited to see this one done! I also finished the Churn Dash quilt top and just found a super cute farm pattern for the backing so hopefully I'll have that one finished soon. I had almost finished an alphabet quilt, but I felt like it needed a border so I'm on the hunt for the perfect border right now. Hopefully I'll find it soon and I can get that one wrapped up as well.

I've been having so much fun catching up on all these projects! Can't wait to get back to work! I'm linking up with My Quilt Infatuation for the NTT party. Stop on by and check out what everyone's been working on!


  1. Gorgeous! I love the fabric collection you chose! I still want to make a zig zag quilt like that someday!

    1. Thank you! I definitely think it is something I will try again in the future. I also want to try the block zipzag at some point. Would work well with a jelly roll I bet. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Always great to hear from fellow quilters.
