Easiest Zig Zag Ever

When I first discovered blogs..one of the first I began to visit on a regular basis was crazymomquilts.blogspot.com. I really liked her style. Then I seen this blog aquiltisnice.blogspot.com and really like her style also. She had made this quilt http://aquiltisnice.blogspot.com/2008/09/zig-zag-quilt-kit-tutorial.html and I really wanted to make it ~though I was dreading (just a bit) the triangles. BUT then Crazy Mom Quilts made a zig zag quilt WITHOUT TRIANGLES and posted her tutorial here: http://beesquarefabrics.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-make-zig-zag-quilt-without.html. Well I knew I was going to go to the Creative Sewing Festival in April and had no doubt I would find some bright and different fabric from what I usually use. I LOVE IT!!!..and easy easy easy...so I am on my way to make another one..just a bit bigger. It is my favorite quilt...It was also the first time I had actually did a pieced back..Love it ... The striped fabric was to be used for binding but I totally screwed that up so I used the leftover pieces to sew together and put on a binding with all the colours of the quilt in it. So thanks crazy mom quilts for showing yours!!
