tuttle quilt

i almost feel like this post is unnecessary, since this quilt looks almost exactly like another quilt i made several years ago--i rarely make such similar quilts, but i had left over blocks from the first quilt, and i really liked that quilt and wanted to use those blocks, so i made another...i like this one just as much.
this quilt is for a friend's (who i don't see as often as i'd like) brand new baby here in denver.  i hope he likes it.  

i used a blue pindot on the back.  i love blue.  i also love zigzag quilts, and i have never made one to keep.  i'm thinking maybe one for a bed.  zigzags would look great on a bed...

  28. It's a beautiful quilt and your friend's baby is very lucky. I've never made a zigzig quilt so I like the closeup pictures to give me an idea of what to do.
