    ZigZag Quilt

    Here is my zigzag quilt. It is the first one that I attempted FMQ on. Each zig has a different pattern. There are jumps and squiggles everywhere, but you won't notice them unless you really look close. The third image is a close up of the quilting, which you may or may not even be able to see! The quilt scrunched up quite a bit after the first wash. The hubs has claimed it as his own. lol. It's about 60x64 inches.

    Really cool. I like the puckered effect that washing gives a quilt. Huby is right to grab it for his own!

    I like the back too. That is a great modern design. I may have to add that to my bucket list.

    I love it - your fabric choices go together beautifully and I can see why your husband would want to claim this for himself. I would too!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very nice. I love the way quilts look after you wash them--so soft and cozy.
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    Beautiful quilt, looks like a fine example of modern quilting. I love the back design too. I bet it's nice and soft, and DH will love it.

    I love the chevron quilts. So fresh. Brown and blue is my favorite color combo.
