A Zig and a Zag


I love the look of quilting in rows in this zig zag quilt.


I've seen this done on several blogs.

It really turned out to be an easy and efficient way to quilt this quilt top.

It took a little bit of wrestling during the process, but I am so pleased with the outcome.

I love your red, white and blue zigzags. I think the next time I'm looking for an AmHero top design, I'll choose this one. I have lots of red and blue scraps!

I love the quilting on this - so simple and so effective! Well, maybe not so simple with all the wrestling around of the bulky quilt to change direction constantly, but it certainly is lovely!
