Zig Zag Quilt

A few weeks ago I finished this quilt for my dear friend’s baby Claire.  I decided to try a zig zag quilt in pinks with some accents.  I cut into my flannel stash for this quilt and paired the flannel with kona cotton in white.  I hoped that the contrasting textures would play well with the zig zag design.

For the backing I chose a minky fabric for the back.  It’s a soft baby pink embossed with roses.  I quilted the quilt in a simple zig zag pattern to emphasize the overall design of the quilt.  I chose not to add borders.

I’m still working on machine bindings.  I have far to go, but in some spots it turned out well.

It was fun to spend a little bit of time sewing again, and even more fun to visit the little one.

Overall I’m pleased with the quilt and hope to find more time for sewing soon!
