Zig Zag

A couple of years ago I made this quilt:

My mom has always liked this fabric line (Peace on Earth).  Last time she was over, she mentioned it again.  So,  I finally decided it was time to use that extra jelly roll I've been hanging on to: 

Most of the zig zag quilts I have seen use half square triangles.  I was happy to find a tutorial that used strips instead.

Mom, this one's for you.
Didn't quite finish it time for Christmas, but I'm thinking a quilted valentine might be a good possibility!
(just waiting for the yardage I ordered on eBay)

It is beautiful. I wonder how that would look in the kitchen.
