Coffee Quilt with Zigzag pattern

Santa Claus brought me a couple of new Circle Lord templates. One is the feathers which I have planned for another quilt and the king size zigzag. I just finished his quilt using the Circle Lord Zigzag template. I love it.

I know that the Zigzag has lots of variations but for this first one, I just wanted it to be simple zigzag. This quilt is a bit busy anyway so simple suits it.

The zigzag gives it such a clean ordered presence; your eye can rest and predict where it is being led. Though the fabric is busy, the zigzag seems to settle or mellow out the quilt. I had some left over big prints so I fussy-cut those to piece into the black back. I think I almost like the back more than the front.

And then I went to to get the 'mug-shot' of steaming hot coffee border pattern. That really set off the quilt.

Now it's off to Mema, the Queen of Binding. I have given up on putting on the binding. I am just no good at it and well, Mema is much better. She does my binding and I do her quilts. It's a good arrangement. I have one of her quilts on my machine now. Here's a sneak preview....

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
