Zig Zag Top and Backing done

With the front and back finished, I'm just waiting for some 100% cotton wadding so that I can get started with the quilting. I think I will quilt zig zags about 4cm apart in the middle of each zig and then carry on all over the quilt.

There is enough material left over for a second, albeit smaller, baby quilt. And this will go to a flying buddy of my husband. He lost his first wife to cancer about ten years ago and only recently found love again. Their spontaneous wedding coincided with her falling pregnant and I am very happy for him. He has always been very welcoming toward my family and especially charming and warm-hearted toward my girls.

I really like the colors in your quilt. Also, how fun to use stripy fabric for zig zags. Can't wait to see it quilted.
