Geeky Zig Zag Quilt Take 2


A few of the blogs that I follow introduced me to the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I decided that I would love to enter my husbands quilt. So those who follow my blog may have seen it already not that long ago sorry but I did take some new pictures!

The story behind this quilt is I really wanted to make my husband a quilt and was struggling on a theme. He came across the circuit board print and suggested a computer theme. I was able to find some awesome prints! The quilt fits my husband since he is a computer geek. I did have some trying moments with hours of squaring blocks but it was totally worth it. I love seeing those I love wrapped in a quilt I made for them :)

Look at this little geek!


I pieced the back with some left over yardage. I love how the quilting looks on the back!


  It is now his cuddle up on the couch quilt :)


Finished quilt measures: Approx. 50” by 75”

Quilted by: Me on my home sewing machine

Love the colors, and I always love zig zag. My hubby rarely uses the quilt I made him! Grrr. But when he falls asleep, I put the quilt on him, being the loving wife that I am, so he ends up being warmed by a quilt despite himself. somewhere deep down inside, I'm sure he loves it. (Yours loves his quilt openly. Nice!)

I love this quilt. That computer geek fabric is so cute. I really love how you made this extra long so your hubby can snuggle under it.

Clever idea with arranging the zigzags vertically, I think it's the first vertical zigzag quilt I've seen.
