Zigzags



I bought these fabrics as a charm pack at the beginning of October to make my do. Good Stitches blocks. (Which were posted to Morocco five weeks ago and still haven't arrived!) These were the leftovers, and rather than add them to the ever growing scrap pile I thought I would combine them with some Moda bella solids white and make a quilt top. I started out by making some half square triangles which laid themselves out into zigzags. I was two squares short of the perfect zigzag so I even dug into my scrap pile to make the final two squares.



The top is almost together (but not quite!) I thought I would get it finished today, but I got caught up with other things. I guess that's how it is sometimes. So many quilts to finish - so little time!

Love your zig zag blocks. The fabrics are great. I have a couple charm packs and have been wondering what to do with them. Thanks for the idea.
