Ocean Zig Zag




This is the first quilt that I have done all the way thru from start to finish by myself. I usually send them off to be quilted so I'm really proud that I was able to do this. It's just stich in the ditch but it's good to know I can do that now. I love this pattern, it was so easy and fun to play with.


This is for my first great nephew. His name it Triton so I went with an aquatic theme for him. I'm still waiting for pictures of him on it.

Such a bright cheery quilt. It's really an accomplishment to quilt on your own quilt isn't it. Makes it extra special for your nephew.
