Weekend Wrapup: Zig Zagging

Not much sewing this weekend - time with family weekend :).  Lots of activities: tide-pool, beach, gardening, games, play-play-play, and just having fun.

One thing that I did manage to work on before the busy weekend was getting the #1 of the Zig-Zag quilt sandwiched and basted.  Now it is ready for some quilting - and no I haven't decided how I'm going to quilt it yet :P.  It's a huge quilt so I'm thinking free-motion?

Here's a peak of the Zig Zag quilt ready to be sandwiched:

Sandwiched and ready for basting - check out the many...many...many safety pins. I get a little paranoid the layers getting shifted, so I usually use A LOT of pins to keep all the layers in place. Better safe than sorry right? :)

Have a safe Memorial day everyone!

I definitely want to make a zigzag--your colors are gorgeous! Can't help with quilting questions--I'm not that brave yet.

P.S. did you just change your header? It's super cool!
