Photo 3 is the back. I used up the leftovers. Just made it.

Sorry, could not get two of the photos to download. Check back later to see the yardage I pieced together and the other top.

This is what I came up with, each block has (64) 1.5" finished squares. I'm going with the orange sashing.
Not sure how big I'll make this. I'm using (16) 4-patches per block. The second picture is more 4 patches I have started.

Another type of a zigzag quilt pattern is this one I just call Wonky Geese. It also has a chevron look to it vertically (seen from a distance) and I just loved making it! It was so much fun to do. Nothing needs to match up except of course the seams where blocks join. The only goal in this quilt was to make red and pink my dominant colors, but I really paid no attention to colors other than that. The scraps will make their own magic as they

My latest scrappy, finished the binding today. It is made with 2 1/2 in strips. Called Merry Go Round from American Patchwork and quilting Feb. 2012. I just quilted with simple straight lines and used fleece for the backing and no batting. It is soft and cozy. The second one is from a previous post, paper pieced friendship stars, finally quilted and bound.

I just need to find the perfect border fabric now...I had a deadline to get this far as this Sunday...whew...made it. We're heading west to Alaska on a road trip Monday morning and I'm taking this with me...it'll be my excuse to stop at "several" quilt shops along the way. (Palmer, Anchorage, Fairbanks)
The pattern is called Counterpoint and it's by Mountain Peek Creations.
