Zany ZebraZ Friday Finish
The finished ZebraZ quilt and pattern release were blogged about last Friday. And now it’s time for the reveal of the completed Zany ZebraZ baby quilt made using these fun cheater blocks from that pattern!
I shared on instagram – mid quilt. This scallop quilting stitch was new to me. I had mentioned in my tutorial post for Quilting With Your Walking Foot my desire to try out some of the other decorative stitches found on my machine. This stitch comes set at a maximum stitch length and width. I used a dark grey Gutermann thread on both top and in bobbin.
It would have been nice to have the scallops be longer in length. But it quilted up fast! The only thing is, with a stitch like this, you have to quilt from top to bottom. You can’t start in the middle and quilt down to the edge then turn the quilt to finish the other end.
This time I kept the details to a minimum, using a medium grey thread to satin stitch the tiniest of eyes.
And the back of the quilt turned out looking pretty good. I was afraid that dark grey thread would stand out like a sore thumb against the white in the backing, especially using that crazy wavy stitch.
The backing is this fun Ampersand Typography in white that I also used as a backing for this custom order patchwork baby quilt back in December.
