Now this is a new departure : Yellows and Oranges ! Not my usual colours but I must say they are growing on me, especially when combined with grey. This is my first Zig Zag quilt. It is a present for somebody who shall remain nameless for another couple of months.
Here is what is left over after squaring up 120 half-square triangle blocks :
Serious layout testing by Daisy : she fell asleep on her back the minute she climbed onto the bed where I was trying out the block layouts, so I guess we have a winner.
Is this cat bliss or what ?
Waiting for assembly :
And here is the finished quilt top :
Definitely growing on me ! For the quilting, I am thinking to use a machine thread matching the background and to use some perle cotton for hand quilting on the white zig-zags a la Silly BooDilly. Now I must park this quilt top for a while to take care of a couple of other UFOS… more on them soon.
