My final layout....and sewn...........

Here is the final layout and I sewed it together yesterday morning.  It is 63" x 81" right now so the next step is deciding if I want to add a border.  I'll wait until after my art quilters group comes on Monday to make that decision.  This was fun to make with all of the different fabrics, some high contrast blocks, some low contrast.
My brother painted the high area behind the cornice board and the room is all painted now.  It 'only' took 2 weeks!  We had a pizza party at my other brother's house last night.  We're meeting cousins tonight.  Quite the social week!

I know you are glad your walls are all painted. Good reason for a party.
LOVE all the beautiful, colorful fabrics in this new quilt top. A feast for the eyes.

Oh boy that zigzag quilt is great looking..... I see one block that looks like a solid until you really stare at it......the black and white one.
Now I've got to finish mine.
Who inspired you to make yours? My inspiration was "Nifty".

Happy Sewing

It looks great, Wanda. I can't wait to see it finished. Glad to see that you are enjoying the family time so much.

Wanda, Your Zig Zag quilt looks fabulous. I'll bet you had a blast pairing fabrics for each block. Don't close the door on Streak of Lightening quilts just yet. Here's a link to one made with 60 degree triangles. Scroll to the bottom to see the quilt.

And, HOORAY, for the finished paint job. You're going to love it everytime you walk through that room. I so adore my little green room's fresh paint.
