Seaside Stitches zig zag quilt...


Tina from sea side stitches created this bright colorful zig zag quilt. I have been wanting to make one of these zig zag quilts forever! I love the rows being the same print. This quilt just really makes me happy! Check out all these finishes! That is one busy lady! Be sure to visit her blog!

I finished three small quilts this week, and this is my favorite!


For my lecture on Modern Quilting, I wanted to show how nicely all the designers play together.

Lots of girls: Valori Wells, Pamela Mostek, Martha Negley, Pat Bravo and Amy Butler.
And some boys, too: Kaffe Fassett, Joel Dewberry and Philip Jacobs.

I'm really happy with the way the color progression worked out, and I think it would make an awesome Blooming Nine Patch, too. Although, HST Zig Zags are a lot easier to make than BNP.

I had a big piece of this orange solid for the back, but I was wishing it was a little paler. The soft stripe worked pretty well for the binding.

For the quilting, I first quilted in the ditch along the zig zag, then went back and quilted both sides of thatline, riding along the edge of the walking foot. The best part of edge to edge quilting is not having to bury any thread tails!
