Zigzag Quilt- Sisterhood of Scraps

Orange Zigzag

It is finally finished. I had made the goal to share this before the first pumpkins were out and I think I made it.

  

When I asked some of my friends to join me in the Sisterhood of Scraps project, I was very honored that Barbara Brackman said YES. She shared her Orange Zig Zag antique quilt that had been on my bucket list to make. There was no time like the present to reproduce her version.

I am in love and I can cross something off my bucket list.

I am ready for the pumpkins.

Aren’t all the shirtings so yummy?

Shirtings are generally a reproduction fabric but I am seeing more and more new styles of shirtings with the popularity of low volume styles growing in popularity.

This is what I can do all day every day!

Play with Fabric

These are just a few of my lights for this quilt. I really tried to get some bold stripes, tickings and other vintage inspired pieces. I added some dots since I think 100% of the quilts I make have dots in them.

Fig Tree and Co. has the yummiest collection of fabric, All Hallow’s Eve and I was hoarding the Orange, stock #20354-11 from this collection. This fabric was the perfect piece to use for this quilt.

Barbara made a mini version of her antique quilt. Such fun!

Always support your independent book retailers by shopping there or asking them to order this book for you.

Book is also available from Martingale Publishing

Next up to reproduce from Sisterhood of Scraps is Sheryl Johnson’s quilt, Halfsquare Hashtags.

Side note: If you are a fan of Barbara like I am then you will want to be on the lookout for

Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns and BLOCKBASE, both from Electric Quilt. 

These are available late 2020 and would be terrific Christmas gift to yourself!

Here is a  page example from the book courtesy of Electric Quilt. I own her original book and can’t wait to get my hands on this one. This book is great for designing, as a resource and historical information.

 

Thank you for following along,
