Scrappy Zig Zags

One last scrappy finish for now! I didn't use a pattern for this, rather I used this photo for inspiration and just went for it! This little quilt finished at about 28" x 32" and will be donated to our local hospital foundation.


I managed to piece together some larger leftover pieces for the back. I don't usually do a pieced back and let me tell you, this took some brain power to figure out how to use what I had to make it big enough, but in the end I think it's pretty fun!

And a close up of the duckies, just because they're so cute!

We're going out of town now for a few days. I hope all of your weeks get off to a good start and I'll be back to check back in later on tomorrow. :)

So lovely! Your quilts often inspire me to give quilting a go and this is no exception. I love the back too. Not sure my brain is up to working out the maths to get it all to fit, anymore.

That is one of the nicest pieced backs I've seen in a long time - of course, the front is not so bad either :0)

Oh I love the ducks! They are so cute. And the straight line quilting looks great.
