Yesterday, I took a break from paper piecing the shop sample (see last post) to work on this little quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap 7. I've been "spying" on my secret partner's favorite list over on Flickr and found that our likes are very similiar to each other.
So off I went searching on the net for some inspirations, came across this zig zag tutorial, thought it's perfect, purchased some fabrics, and made this in a few hours.
What do you think? I didn't measured it, but I think it's about 12" x 15".
The tutorial is from AmandaJean at Crazy Mom Quilts. I think it's simply genius! don't you think so too? A zig zag quilt WITHOUT sewing any triangles. It's strip pieced and cut into squares. It's all in the layout of the blocks that formed the zigzag.
Of course, I have to make a doll-sized quilt, so I started out with smaller width of strips... 1-1/2". I see future quilts with this pattern but big, sleep under, wrap around, cozy kinda quilts. :0)
