Finished Zig Zag Quilt

The jelly roll zig zag quilt is finished!
  I hand stitched the binding down this morning in bed (feeling a little under the weather),
washed it, and gave it to my happy parents this afternoon.
  It feels good to check something off the list - especially a belated Christmas gift.

As a bonus for completing a project, this arrived in the mail today...

I think I know what I am working on next.

Oh my goodness!!!! That is so beautiful.
I looked at jelly rolls at the fabric store the other day and wondered what you do with them.

Is there a tutorial that you do?
Do you teach quilt piecing for dummies?

We love, love, LOVE it! It matches everything perfectly. I know it was a ton of work.

I hope you feel better quickly. Maybe someone can take over for you tomorrow and you can hunker down and take care of just you!;)

The zigzag looks great! I like the bottom pic, and that pink would be interesting in it. It's bright and cheerful. I died laughing when I saw your "child proofing" the house cartoon.


Wow -- your colorful zig zag quilt is absolutely beautiful -- the quilting is fantastic. I just discovered you. Your bio is similar to mine if I printed one. Thanks for the great photos -- barbara

Oh WOW, your quilt is BEAUTIFUL!
Love it! I'm sure your dear parents are smiling big everytime they look at it! What a keepsake! Thanks for sharing! I love the cute Valentine cookies, we like to make them at our house too! My Mom use to sing "Love At Home" often, we always needed it, it was a gentle reminder to behave! LOL
