scrappy trip finished!

I love this quilt.  
I've already said a lot about it here, but I have to say it again--this quilt was so fun to make and I really mean that.  I enjoyed every minute of the piecing process.
 I decided on a zigzag layout because I love zigzags, and it was different from the traditional diamond layouts.  But I don't think you can go wrong on this one.  I want to make another one now and make diamonds.
I ended up going with the plummy architextures print for the binding
and I quilted in a dogwood pattern, which was my first time, and I love it.  It's definitely not perfect, but you really cannot tell.  I'll be visiting that quilting pattern again soon.  
 I used a Kaffe paperweight on the back, my very favorite kaffe fassett fabric.  It's such a forgiving print to use as a backing...

I love it because it is a zig zag and different! And I now think I might quilt mine with the dogwood blossom design too. I was trying to decide, but I think I'm sold so thank you. :)

This is so pretty, thanks for sharing :) Recently, I very efficiently (not like me...) sorted all my 'scraps' into vague colour piles, so this would be a great quilt for me to do next. Congrats! Maya.
