I made two different examples of this zig-zag block this week. The top one will be used when I write up directions for making October's BOM for the Bayberry Quilt Guild. The black and white one, with two different fabrics -- although the lighting makes it look like three -- was for a swap of black and white blocks. I like the black and white one and I think I'll make one more. I haven't received the black and white block from that swap yet but when I do I will have a total of twenty 12.5x12.5 blocks -- not all of them black and white -- and will decide what to use as stripping, possibly a black-on-black fabric, or possibly another color and have a top made. I may decide not to quit it but give it unquilted to a charity that is willing to receive tops and then do the quilting. This would make me happy because I really don't enjoy the quilting step in larger quilts. And heaven knows I don't NEED more bed sized quits.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
