My Aqua Zig Zag Quilt!

Sharing is caring!

So things have been progressing.
Remember my original Living Room Plans
 I’ve been working on that Zig Zag Quilt.
I refuse to call it a Chevron quilt.
Chevron is a gas station.
My quilts are zig zagged.  
(Sorry Jen!)

I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I quilted the zig zags straight with about three lines in a row around each seam. Then I decided to free-motion quilt the border.  I made this quilt specifically for my couch, so the sides borders are wider than the top and bottom.  
That’s my computer cord hiding under the couch, not a horrible gaping thread. 🙂
The greatest thing about the way I quilted it is the back!!!  Isn’t it beautiful on the plain white back?  This way I can change things up if I get tired of the aqua.  

For now it’s resting on my bed so I can get to the couch slipcover.  I promised myself I would finish this quilt before I started on the slipcover.  See I can finish things!!

I have a queen size bed and it is slightly larger than the top.   So I think in the future it will fit a twin size bed nicely or I can use it as a guest room quilt.  PS…Ignore that ugly portion of free-motion quilting on the left side there…those were my very first ones and I kind of changed it further down to be prettier.  

And just to remind you all, I did plan this quilt ages ago, before Shelley made this gorgeous rug that I covet!  🙂

    1. The chevron pattern is named after military chevrons. It’s just the same shape…

  26. Hello! Love you zig zag couch quilt! Where can I find a pattern?

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I don’t have an official pattern for it–there are lots of zigzag quilt tutorials if you google it.
