Back to dotty zig zag.......

I haven't abandoned this project, just been a little busy lately........  I added some more sewn squares to the design wall yesterday.
I have plenty of Kaffe triangles cut but.......
......I had run out of these.  Three cranks through my die cutter and I have 96 triangles and I'm ready to sew.
I rarely catch a bird in flight while I am taking my photos.  This sparrow was hanging on to the stalk and eating the seeds when I grabbed the camera.  When I snapped the shutter, he had just taken off.

Your quilt is looking good! Amazing how fast the little bird's wings are beating.

This will be a striking quilt, Wanda. It's hard to believe there's a product that can make you work faster than you already do!

I'm loving the combo of the dots and the bright florals - this is beautiful. How large will it be?

The dot goes wonderfully with the bold prints.
Is the dot fabric new?

I really like your choice of gray as a contrasting neutral. Very effective.

Your zig zag quilt looks fabulous. I love the grey dots. I used that on a quilt and just love the looks of it.

Every time I see your Zig-Zag it makes me smile. It is truly gorgeous. It is so much fun to watch your pieces grow.

Have you ever posted a photographed of your cutter? You know how much I quilt and I am not familiar with a die cutter of any kind. I guess I could cruise the quilt section at Joanne Fabrics to see one. ?

Wonderful quilt. Which size triangles did you cut? 6.5"?

I love those dots, and love how they make an odd pattern when they are sewn to each other.
This is really a fun quilt!
