This is the new book I am so excited about. I love the cover quilt–I’ve never met a zig zag that I didn’t like–even though this one is really a rail fence variation. This book was written by Sujata Shah whom I became acquainted with through The Root Connection blog. She had published directions for this quilt on her blog (zig zag tutorial tab at the top of her blog) and it is one of my favorite quilts. She uses a large variety of fabrics in her quilts so I was immediately attracted to them.
I like the method for this quilt, oversized strips with a gentle curve sewn into them and then trimming it to perfect squares to make the block.
There are other layouts suggested too so I may have to make some more of these blocks in a different assortment of fabrics and try one (or two) of them too.
I have my first four 16″ blocks up on the design wall. With this busy week I plan on making a few blocks each day and sewing the top together by the end of the week.
Be sure to check out Sujata’s blog. She shows the whole stack of quilts that are in the book. If you scroll down you will see more as she prepared to go to Houston to Quilt Market. Here are a couple more of my favorite quilts on her blog (the red ones).
Also check out C&T’s website to see more quilts from the book. If you like free form piecing, you will love this book.
