I named the block that is formed from that method, the Zig Zag Block.
The quilt I am sharing today was made with over dyed fabrics from Quilts by Barb. It is for a quilt challenge from her quilt retreat. You can read about her retreat here.
I started with four over dyed fat quarters that are required to be in the quilt for the Quilts by Barb Challenge.
I added two more over dyed fabrics.
I chose three fabrics for my block fabric. The three on the bottom - a pattern light green and a hand dyed fabric from Chris at Dye Candy Fabrics and a light green striped fabric.
I cut several strips (1 1/2" to 2 inches) from the fat quarters. Saving some of it for the borders.
I cut a couple 4 inch strips from the three block fabrics.
Cut the block fabric across at 4 inches. You now have blocks with one strip stitched on one side.
Stitch a skinny strip on one side of the block - not the opposite side, an adjoining side.
It is ok to have some of the strips of the same fabric on the same block, but they all could be different too.
Trim the blocks at an angle to 4 1/2 inches square as shown in the photos.
Then I stitched them together in lengthwise rows.
I had fun taking some photos at some weird angles.
And then flipped it upside down to get another perspective.
It is ready to quilt. I plan to quilt it yet, in May, if I can find some "Me Time" for quilting!
Another fun Zig Zag Quilt Top completed!
