Where's that Zig Zag quilt?

Here!

The weather outside's been frightful, but I think this quilt is quite delightful...

It's 64" square.
The green polka dot triangles are repeated on each end.

I ended up not having quite enough fabric for another quilt top (and we don't really need another one), so I just incorporated all the leftover fabric into the back.

Here's what happens when you have exactly enough white fabric and you measure wrong.

This is such a pretty quilt! I think I might have to put it on my list of projects - I need to make a quilt for my cousin's daughter, Zoe, and a zigzag quilt is just perfect.

Oooooooooooooooooooooh... I love your quilt in the snow! How beautiful they complement each other. A match made in heaven. I love the back as much as the front... and that little piece in the corner... the measurement opportunity... I love that so much!

I think I almost like that back more than the front! Fantastic job, and I think that pink rectangle is the greatest. What a sweet, happy mistake!

It looks wonderful! I love it - and love it in the snow. I love the back too. That little polka dot piece is perfect.

I love it. The snow really showcases it really well. The back is amazing to, I need to try that out sometime.

It is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing! And, if you put your tag on the little piece of pink in the corner, it will totally look like you did it on purpose.
