Ta Da!

It’s finished! Here is the first quilt I pieced and machine quilted myself!

I used Nettie’s pattern, which I loved. I typically stay away from triangles for fear of matching up those points, but this was a fun quilt to make.

I wanted to emphasize the zig zag motion of the quilt so I used Ashley’s quilting technique by following the zig and the zag with lines on each side.

The zig zag quilting makes a nice effect on the back too.

I was so anxious to show you pictures of it that I haven’t had time to wash it yet, but I will do that tonight.  I love it and I’m so happy it’s finished!
