zig zagging




I finished my zig zag quilt yesterday. The boy who will be getting this said he liked orange and blue.....so orange and blue it is! i have seen this quilt a few places here in "blog-land" and know that bee square fabrics has a tutorial. Just wish I would have read the directions more carefully. instead of using the same fabric every other row i used different ones. This meant it was little more tricky to make....but i had fabric cut and couldn't let it go to waste, could I? i still need to quilt this, but am going to wait until it cools off here.



today i will begin a t-shirt quilt. i've never made one. the shirts have been washed and dried...what's next? cutting up perfectly good t-shirts. :)

  1. That quilt is beautiful! Can't wait to see it when it's finished.
    Gerda was going to make a t-shirt quilt for Jake, I'd given her all of the old, memorable shirts of his, but she never did get it made...maybe I can do it someday...IF (big if!!) I ever learn to quilt!

  2. Hey Diana,
    You'd have to get it back from me :-) I'm pretty sure I have it out here.

    Sam's new favorite color is Orange. He'd like this.
