I picked up 2 charm packs of this really colorful and fun fabric a while back, with intentions of a little quilt for my daughter.
I also have been wanting to make a zig zag quit for some time. So this was a perfect match!
I learned about a technique where you sew you white square right sides with your printed square. Draw or iron a diagonal line or fold and sew 1/4" on each side of the line, you then cut on the line and you have two squares complete. Its a genius quilting trick. So I got going on cutting and piecing arranging my layout with my 5 year old input on how the colors should go. She did not like the mixed up look like the quilts online, she wanted the 4 block that matched to stay together so I did as she asked and we put together a very color pleasing quilt. I used a polkadot flat sheet for the backing and black and white dot for the binding. I quilted along the zigzag and was able to complete the machine quilting in a few hours.
Here is the method I used for the blocks, you can arrange theese triangles in a number of ways to get so many different patterns, 4 finished blocks make one zig zag
Next on the list to finish this bed off is a pillow that requires some hand embroidery. Inspired by this lovely shop. To be done in the car on our family vacation. Coming soon!
