"Super Zig" - WIP # 2

I saw this amazing "Super Zig" quilt pattern by the "Happy Zombie" a few weeks ago and as I have always wanted to make a zig zag quilt, thought it would be the perfect one to use some of the DS Picnic and Fairgrounds fabrics with. So on Saturday afternoon, I cut into this lovely bundle of fabrics:
I decided to add in an extra column to the original pattern, so cut a few (3 or 4) 4.5 x 8.5 inch pieces from each fabric and arranged them into 6 columns.
The finished size is 200 x 205 cm (approx 82 x 84 inches). Just need to decide how to quilt it now................

Linking up to Canoe Ridge Creations Sew Modern Monday , Quiltstory's Fabric Tuesday, and Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday (which is at Don't call Me Betsy this week), and to Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day, 
so head on over to one of these blogs and check out some of the beautiful creations.

  3. I love this!! I saw a zig zag quilt that had echoed zig zag 1/4 inch spacing in the white only. It was very attractive. How ever you quilt it, it is beautiful.

  4. Nice one. I'm doing a zig zag quilt in Chasing Cotton's Quilt class 101 and can't wait to see what Rebecca will suggest for the quilting. Like the previous poster, I'm thinking echo quilting too. You've got a beautiful quilt .

  9. I would never have thought to use these fabrics like this, but it looks amazing! I would also love to do a zigzag quilt one day :). How did you collect all of those DS prints, though? I thought some were Australia only (or are you in Australia?).

  10. Oh, so lovely! I've got a zig zag somewhere down my list of quilts to make, and I've seen them done with straight-line quiltling following the path of the zig zags... totally awesome. Can't wait to see your finish!

  16. I love this! I'm so jealous that Australia seemed to get more of the yellow prints! I decided to decorate my dining room around this collection, but most of what I found in the US was red and blue.

    Lovely quilt! :)
