*Yes you see grass in this picture - no, we don't have grass in MN...my office has some fake stuff right behind my desk. It's nice to turn around and stick my toes in it.
I started this zig-zag quilt this fall and finished just in time for a xmas present!
Our newest nephew is a rolly-polly 4 month old and as mellow as can be. I hope he likes the preppy look.
When I first started making the zig-zag blocks (half-triangle squares aren't so hard), I intended on incorporating all the Katie Jump Rope, including the argyle. I then had a mini-panic attack with the thought of matching up all the diagonals in the fabric with diagonal cuts for the triangles. So I decided to go simple and just used up all the diagonal as one big piece in the middle.
There was another bit of concern when I realized the straight lines in the blue and green zig-zags would be a bit jig-jaggy, but I just pushed on through that thought and connected them anyway. I think they blend ok...
The back is just a piece of Urban Flannel - Friends print. Super simple! And a solid blue binding pulls these two sides together.
