A Zigzag finish

Today I finished the final block of my little woodland wall hanging and even had time to put it together.



I added a zigzag border and am really happy with how it turned out. One of the reasons I love applique is that there is way less math required and though this border is not too difficult it did take me a while to figure how to make the corners work out. This photo gives you an idea of what I did. Notice that two different units were required and some offset rows were necessary. If you need to see it more closely you should be able to click on the photo to see a larger picture.




And finally a picture of the finished bunny block. it is not my favorite but seems OK once they are all put together. My little grandson arrives next week so it will just get pinned up without quilting for now, but hopefully I will find the chance to quilt it soon! Thanks for following along as I made this fun little project, it has been a delight to create.

What a lovely wallhanging! The animals have a bit of a 60's look, I love them. They remind me of illustrations in books I had as a child. Gorgeous! and love the zigzag border, it really pops.

Oh I love the last block and of course the whole quilt together. What a clever idea to put a zig zag border around it. Your little grandson will love it. Well done, and it record time too!

After each block I wanted to say, "How cute!" but now the whole quilt is really cute! Will you hand or machine quilt it?

What a cute quilt! So adorable!! I'll have to check out that antique reproduction group you will join. Do you know the quilt you'll be making? I am beginning a BOM also from close to that era very soon. I can't wait to get started!
