Finished Zig Zag

IMG_3794

In between acting as a dairy cow ( I’m gonna start moo-ing) to my always hungry baby, I managed to finish this quilt.  Actually I’ve been sewing my head off while I’ve had extra hands entertaining my 3 year old during the day.  I finished this one with simple quilted zig zag’s and backed it with a moda orangish red print I can’t remember the name of.  It’s in the shop.

It turned out great. My babies were the same way. I remember trying to finish my masters thesis in between nursing. It felt like I was just getting going when he'd need to eat again. Hang in there.

So simple but so unique! The fabric choices for this one are limitless. I, too, am going to put it in my "someday-must-do" file. Thanks for sharing.

Cute quilt! I love the colors and feel of it.

I'm a milkin' mama, too. What makes it reallllly special is that my husband actually grew up on a dairy farm, so the cow jokes are plentiful 'round here. Mooooooooo!

I LOVE this quilt so much that I am making a similar one right now! I am adding another row to include purples so it has all of the colors of the rainbow. Can't wait to get it all put together! :) Good luck with your hungry little one! Nursing is such a great way to bond with your baby (not to mention SOO much cheaper than formula!) but it can definitely wear you down after a while since no one else can do the feeding so you can sleep. Hang in there and enjoy the sewing while you have some help- I found when my last baby was tiny that even though I was sleep deprived all the time when I did get the energy to make/sew something it really lifted my spirits! :)

Cheryl Arkison said...

I can't believe you are finding this much time to quilt. You are on fire! Good thing milk isn't flammable.

I'm almost done with my first zig zag quilt top. As far as quilting, do you just quilt along the edges of the zig zags? What did you use to keep it even and uniform? Did you use the foot as a guide? Did you have to use a walking foot? It looks beautiful. After all this work, I don't want to mess up my quilting.

LOL I know what you mean at least you do not have to pump the rest out like I had to do. Hang in there it will get better.
Your quilt is beautiful and you must be happy it is finished.

I love this quilt, I'm not brave enough to sew HST due to machine-sewing-on-the-bias issues but I included in my list of inspirations for my newest quilt handmadebyclairebear.com/2012/01/11/wips-on-w ednesday-just/

Sarah said...

I absolutely love this quilt! Although I can hold my own with a sewing machine, I'm pretty new to quilting. Would it be easy to re-size this quilt larger? Or do you have a pattern for a larger size?

Nooly said...

question, how big a quilt does this make?
