After watching Fig Tree & Co's ZigZag quilting tutorial on You Tube, I knew I had to try it. I love, love, love how it looks! A huge thank you to Joanna for sharing her technique.
I thought about quilting diagonally across the piece, but doing the zigzag longways across the table runner made it fast and easy to do on my domestic sewing machine. I just lined up each row with the side of the presser foot and eyeballed it - no marking at all.
All the fabrics were from my stash (yay!) The trees and the cars are an older fabric line called Holly's Tree Farm. I love the gray with the trees. The gray, white and red don't scream Christmas but are still festive.
I also downloaded Joanna's free Fly Away pattern. So in between organizing the sewing room and corralling UFO's (2 new year's resolutions), I'm piecing flying geese. The geese are being made from a jelly roll from my stash that also has a subtle Christmas theme. I'll share a pic of the progress later on.
My favorite way to express my creativity is with fabric. Join me as I share my journey with you. I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!
