I Stitched a Zig

...and I think I heard the angels singing.
 
It's been a while since I actually found time to sit and stitch, but I was determined to create one of these adorable Mini Zigs ala The Way I Sew It did. She wrote a fabulous tutorial, so stop by and try it out for yourself. 



Hoorays 

  • I LOVE these fabrics! They were from my stash and inspired by Kate's Geisha Quilt. The red is my favorite of all the prints/colors.
  • I learned a new design concept...and my brain survived!

Mehs: 

  • My points aren't all that pointy. I could've sworn I was accurate with my cutting & sewing.
  • My sizing is different than P's. I kinda did that on purpose.

I saw this cool way to sew triangles and wanted to try it. What I didn't think about before I began, was that my triangles would be smaller than those in the Mini Zig tutorial. It's about 8" long x 9" wide. Perfect Mug Rug size!
 
All in all, I'm happy with the top. And, hey...I'm still cutting my quilting teeth. That's what Mini Quilts are for. :)

PS...Thanks for the inspiration and tutorial, P!


Are you sewing this weekend?
 
Happy Saturday!
