Quilt Number One: The Kissing Quilt
I used a green fine point sharpie marker to write the words that I wanted to thread paint.
First I overall quilted the center of the quilt and wiggle line and zig zag quilted the border.
Stitched my name and year in the bottom right hand corner of the quilt.
All done quilting - trimmed and ready to bind.
I chose black fabric for the binding. Wrapped it around to see how it looked.
Stitched on the binding.
Flipped it over so you can see the back of the quilt and hanging sleeve.
I hung it up on the wall to get a vertical photo.
Maybe it should have said: I quilt better than I cook!
Quilt Number Two: Ziggin' Outside the Block
I used two thread colors for this quilt too. A lite tan and olive green. I started with the tan thread - zigging and zagging in the open area. I triple wiggle line quilted around the green strips.
A couple up close photos of my crazee zig zag quilting and the triple wiggle line quilting around the strips.
I really had fun with the quilting on this project.
Flipped it over to the back side for a photo.
Ready for the binding.
Up close of the corners.
Quilt Number Three: Straight Line Zigging
Before Quilting it looked like this.
The quilting on this one was all little zig zags going in and out of the zig zags.
An up close photo of the stitching.
Full view of the back of the Straight Line Zigging Quilt.
I like the backs almost as much as the fronts!
I folded this one in half, so you can imagine how it will look as a zipper bag.
Quilt Number One and Quilt Number Two are my entries for Project Quilting.
Ziggin' Outside the Block and the Kissing Quilt
I think of my Kissing Quilt as my Bonus Quilt. I used the leftover scraps to make it. I guess, I would have to say the Straight Line Zigging is a Bonus Quilt too.

I will be proposing a May for Me Quilt Challenge in mid April. I am seriously thinking of using the construction method for the zig zag block as the challenge. I am still looking for input about that. You could use up all those little strips and scraps. It would make a great baby quilt or a lap quilt.
I tried another arrangement and came up with a little maze quilt. Just think of all the ways you can arrange the blocks to make an even more complicated maze! I did not quilt it yet -- maybe next week.
I will be adding my entry and bonus quilt to the Project Quilting Flicker Photo Stream group at: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1401824@N21/pool/
All the Zig Zag Quilt entries are due at Noon on Sunday March 25th.
Hope you are having a relaxing weekend!
