My Zigzag Quilt Along Has Morphed

I love the button for the zig-zag quilt along, don’t you? I wish I knew how to create these adorable buttons!

It seems like I am always at least a week behind when participating in these quilt-alongs. No worries, though. I finally finished cutting my fabrics, and started sewing the squares into triangles the other day.

But then these squares started calling me (not literally) to piece them into a different patchwork project. You see, I have been diligently working on a line of handmade patchwork products for my up-and-coming etsy shop. I should be focusing on making inventory right now.

I still haven’t even quilted my strip-pieced quilt top from the first quilt-along. That one is basted and ready to go, patiently waiting for me to focus, or to finish my inventory marathon.  Stay tuned – I will share more on that soon.

  • Your working on an etsy shop? I’m impressed! And I can’t wait to see what you’re planning to offer. Good luck!

  • Those fabrics look wonderful…I don’t do so well with the quilt alongs either…I usually finish, but I’m always late! It will be fun to see what is in your Etsy shop..I keep thinking I should put some things in mine! Have a great day!

    I’m so happy to know you have a shop opening up! Can’t wait to see the fabric combinations and colors that you choose and I can’t wait to see that quilt. finished! I know many others feel the same!!

  • Sometimes my projects take a different direction as well. I like the simple blocks you just put together. I typically take on the difficult paper pieced blocks and then it takes forever to finish. Easier and finished is always good in my book. I do like the zig zag pattern and love your color choices in the one you finished in May.

  • I love the fabrics that you chose to use in your new quilt. So cheerful!

    I can’t wait to see what you’re putting in your Etsy shop!!
