Scrapbox Zig Zag Top

IMG_3498

I forgot how much I love a cute zig zag quilt. For this one I used more of my Pez fabric and some other larger pieces that were floating around in my stash. It’s such a nice feeling to use up some of those bits that are too big for the scrap box but get lost in the yardage. This quilt is the PERFECT gender neutral quilt.

Oh how fun! I just love this :)

This is a great use of the half-square triangles! If you have strips of fabric in your scraps, you can make those blocks even faster. I used that method to make some pinwheel blocks:

LOVELY! I really like the scrappy look but with the color families staying together. Is it a present for someone or are you keeping it?

That's so pretty. I love the ruler fabric that you used.

tarabu said...

I love it when you can use triangles and still only piece squares!

Mandy said...

Can I ask you a question?? What size were your individual squares?? I want to make this for my daughter, but I am not sure how big to make the squares?? I looked in your shop and it is not there anymore.... I'd love to know about how big your squares were and then I can eyeball it!
