Patchwork Zigzag Baby Quilt

by Julie Hirt

This patchwork zigzag/chevron quilt was made for a sweet baby girl and hitting the mail tomorrow.


The entire process from piecing to hand binding is enjoyable on a baby sized quilt. Even the basting isn’t bad!


Front piecing is Kate Spain’s Cuzco collection
Backing & Binding is Hugs & Kisses from Anna Marie Horner’s Loulouthi

Measures 40″ x 40″


I did a free motion stipple because I love the texture it makes. The quilt will get softer and crinklier with each wash.

The quilting was done using Aurifil Maki 50 wt thread in Platinum, I think it’s a nice neutral choice with all of these colors.


My friend Chelsea from Whatcha Makin’ Now took these pictures for me.  I think I’ll just take all my quilts over to her house for photo shoots now.  Don’t you just love her cabinet filled with vintage Pyrex?
