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.


She showed me how to use the RED SNAPPER quilt loading system. Hello- that is amazing!!! I’m pretty sure I will be buying those for my smaller frame.


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….)
