Modern Quilting for a Contemporary Quilt Top

After many mistakes, I learned a few valuable lessons with this quilt, but I think it turned out pretty nice.  I really tried to come up with some new quilting styles and had lots of opportunity to stretch my creativity with each zag ...or is it zig?  I was inspired by Jenny at sewkindofwonderful, as well as Brigitte at farbstoff.  They share their modern quilting styles through their blogs.  Be sure to check them out!  Thanks, ladies, for posting pictures of your quilting!  Brigitte will be designing fabric for Moda, and has a longarm quilting business in Germany.  Jenny sells her curves ruler and patterns as well as runs a longarm quilting business in Washington State. 











I actually came up with a couple new ideas myself!   I hope to make another zigzag quilt soon, but this time I will make it with rectangles rather than half square triangles.  I have much more stash to bust!

  13. Now you've done it. You have inspired me to start a new project after seeing your zig zag quilt. That means one of my UFOs will have to wait a little longer to get completed. Your quilting looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
