My friend Diane gave me a link in her comment the other day for another method of zig zag. It is done with 60 degree triangles sewn in rows. I had some triangles already cut to do a little mock up with. I will have to cut a lot more if I make this one. My die cuts 10 at a time and 10 layers deep so pulling the fabrics and pressing them will be the time consuming part.
I think that if I do put a border on this quilt it needs to be something neutral, like black and white. I thought of zebra stripes but didn't have one that I liked. I pulled my favorite stripe.
I tried a stop border first but unfortunately it did what it was supposed to do and stopped the flow from the quilt blocks into the border and I don't think I like it. I don't want it to scream "I have a border". Today I need to vacuum the basement and clear off the tables so I'll glance over at it several times and see if I'm liking it or not.
