    It is interestingly similar to the continuous prairie point tutorial on sewtakeahike.typepad.com (
    (http://sewtakeahike.typepad.com/sewt...and_tutorials/) as shown below.

    Fascinating how we stumble into these unique methods.

    Love them both.

    That was my first thought as well. But I saw a picture earlier of an antique quilt and this may be a good method to try the zig zags on that quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    SanDiegoQuilter just posted a picture of an amazing antique quilt here:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-113984-1.htm

    It looks like it's all appliqued, but this method would be PERFECT for the sashing.

    Very timely. Thanks again.

    I have seen this method for the Prairie Points that Corky showed and have used them. I had not seen that method for the zig zag. It is cool! I marked it for future use, thanks!
