Zig Zag Custom quilt #2

Step 3 – Squaring up the blocks – 1.5 hours
Unless you can sew the perfect 1/4in seam allowance every time, your blocks are likely to be slightly wonky and may not assemble perfectly once you start forming your lines.
To ensure you have only perfectly formed squares measuring 7.5in x 7.5 in,  you will have to square up your blocks using a square ruler (a 9.5in x 9.5in one in this case).

And here is what is left at the end of this mind-numbing task :

Step 4 – Assembling the blocks into lines and then into a single piece – 5 hours
Assemble 20 square of one colour into a line. Repeat with each of the other 4 colours.

Then assemble the lines into the final quilt top in the following sequence : orange – grey – medium – grey – yellow to get the finished top :

Et voilà !

    Hello!
    Just a short note to say how much I have enjoyed your blog! Love that big zig quilt. I have been away from quilting for a few years (went back to school and something had to go!) but I think that this beauty is going to be my first attempt at quilting again. Thanks for the inspiration!
    I will look forward to new posts and to seeing what you have been working on!
    Best, Carol

    • Thank you so much for the compliment, Carol ! Unfortunately working full time again significantly reduces my output! I have lots of ideas but very little time to actually create anything… This working for a living is a bummer ;-)
