Super Zig

 Here is the newest project. I have so many quilt tops to quilt, but I couldn't resist this quick one. It's called Super Zig and is a free pattern (click on the name). The strips are 4 1/2" and it's a simple split rail so should go together very quickly. I sewed all the strips together in about 30 minutes (5 colors, 3 strips each).  As you can see on the pattern, the background is white, but I didn't think that would be very practical. I have a white with thin black lines in a wiggly "weave" pattern that I bought from Lunn fabrics about 4-5 years ago. I wanted something light, but not white. It will be interesting to see how it works.

This quilt is being sent to Alycia and maybe the one I am making now will too. I've made QOVs for the past 5 years or so, and want to continue that. Maybe I'll even get 12 done this year, I don't know.

And on the UFO front, I have one more finished, but not because I did any work on it. I thought the Butterfly Blooms still had some quilting to go, but it's done. It's going to be given away this Friday...finally. I made it for my friend, and when we put it on her bed it was a bit too short to be a bedspread (some of the mattress showed). She asked if I could make it wider...I thought I could, but I was wrong. It's been sitting waiting for me to say, what you see is what you get. So she gets it this year for her birthday.

I haven't decided if I get to count that as another UFO done, or if I should add one more quilt top to quilt. I have plenty of them :^)

Love your quilts. It would be really hard to make a quilt larger after you had finished it. I agree with you....what you see is what you get. Great job on the finish!

I printed off the Zig pattern, it would be a great pattern for a different colors of course!
