Scrappy Zig Zag Quilt QUILTED
The Scrappy Zig Zag Quilt is Quilted! I thought I’d be dropping the quilt top and back off at my mom’s, but instead she loaded the machine and we worked on it together.
I started out with a very ambitious quilting design. After quilting 2 triangles, I then began to rip out the quilting stitches. She and I both ripped. 🙁 Whew, those were such a mess. Turns out ripping out quilting stitches SUCKS. Instead we went with a meander in the dark triangles and horizontal lines in the white triangles. I wanted to help define the zig and the zag with the quilting motif. Perfect, no. Fast, yes.
Mom‘s machine is a Voyager 17 with a 14″ throat for quilting space. It was so nice to have sooooo much room to quilt. She’d do a row of quilting, then I’d do a row. It went really fast and I’m happy to report, neither of us have sore shoulders. =)
Now, to get this little Charlie Brown Quilt bound by Friday, when it will be gifted to a friend. (Who, I think, doesn’t read the blog….)
