scrappy zig zags

by Nova on February 4, 2013

The cool change & wet weather that we encountered last weekend was just the push I needed to finish hand quilting & put this quilt to bed.

it’s full of lovelies & uglies, trash & treasure, oldies & newies, gifted & swapped, selvedges I’d been saving for goodness knows what – each has a place & a reason to be in it for me. Sometimes that’s all a quilt needs to be. I love it.

I quilted it with a combination of relaxed zig zags on the machine and some hand quilting with Perle thread.

This quilt began as an effort to get a grip on the scrap stash. In truth it hardly made a dent!
