Large Zig Small Zag Quilt.

This baby is ready for prime time, I mean the long arm quilter.  The finished size is going to be about 53x76 inches.  I received the extra 2 yards of Rich Red I needed to finish this quilt top, on Saturday.  I worked the entire weekend, so yesterday, after a couple of errands, I spent the rest of the day, into the evening sewing.  I wanted to finish up, because we're having our card group here, tonight, and I use my dining room table for cutting and laying out fabric.

Today I trekked to the closest ballpark to take these photos.  I thought the Red,White and Blue fabric went well at a ballpark.  I'm always amazed at how much math is involved in quilting!  This quilt required a lot of math!

The large zig zags look white, in the above photos, they really are blue and white.  Here's a close-up:


By the way, I hung the quilt top upside down, and didn't realize it until I was home!

I wrote a tutorial for the quilt top.  Nothing fancy, believe me.  If you're interested, it's here.
May your bobbins always be full,
