It is that time of year again over at Amy's Creative Side. It is tiime to share your favorite quilts and drool over everyone else work at the Blogger's Quilt festival. It is running from May 17, 2013 - May 31, 2013, but entries are only being accepted until the 24th.

This year I am entering my Zigzagged Quilt. If you are a regular follower you may have seen this before as it was my first and thus far only finish of the year.

Zigzagged Quilt

I made this quilt in only Blue and Green. There are a couple shades in there but it is only blue and green. Katie from Sew Katie Jean's (a local quilt shop) helped me picked the colors and I made it as a shop sample. She really like the pattern and knew how much I like zigzags so she asked me to make it. I put it off and put it off until she came up to me with a stack of lovely fat quarters saying what about these and I decided to go for it right then and there and had her cut me the yardage.

Full Length Zigzagged Quilt

I decided to put a lot of effort into the quilting of this one. More than I ever had before.

Each size zigzag has its own type of quilting. It was a lot of fun to make. Even Suzie likes it. Actually see liked it a whole bunch.

The little stinker even put her head on it while I was binding. I think she thought it was hers.

Binding is done now I just have to move the pup so I can throw the quilt it to the wash.
