A new sewing obsession
In the last 24 hours, I have become completely obsessed with sewing a zigzag quilt. It all started with a general feeling of bummed-ness that came on while reflecting that I am really not so good with the clothing sewing. Then came a little twinkling of re-interest in home-sewing projects. I start craving as much cozy as possible when the weather turns cool. Shortly thereafter, dear Stephen picked me up a copy of Material Obsession which pictures quilts sewn with just the right mix of reproduction vintage fabrics and funky modern prints. Then on to the Material Obsession blog--where I saw this beauty--and then on to the Flickr zigzag quilt pool. (Is there a Flickr pool for everything?) I'm totally smitten.
Lest you dismiss this quilt project because of all that triangle piecing, did you know that you can make one with strip-pieced square blocks sewn on point? You can! Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts offers a tutorial on Bee Square Quilts here!
