This little zigzag quilt was made awhile ago and is already sold, but I thought I'd show it to you today. I started with the backing fabric (an Alexander Henry print, AH has the BEST novelty prints). I just loved this fabric, but I was stumped on what to put with it. I decided something really simple would be the best, so I did another chevron/zigzag in lime and white. And then that stripe just happened to make the perfect binding. In the end, I just loved this one, and I think it's a very successful design to really showcase your backing fabric. I just wish it wasn't quite so boring to sew!!
I have a real problem with sewing a whole bunch of same kind, same color pieces together. I love these miminalist simple designs, but I can only make them in small doses! So back to sewing bright, wild and scrappy stuff for me!
