C'est Fini

Originally uploaded by Little Gray Dog

finally Ziggy is finished and photographed (albeit, poorly). I still can't manage to take a decent photograph with my camera inside, but I'm working on it. Inspired by Denyse Schmidt's Big Zig the chocolate brown fabric is Kona cotton and the florals are mostly Kaffe Fassett prints purchased at the Button Box in Wellesley, MA. The backing is hot pink Quilter's Only cotton from JoAnns.

The quilting is simple shadow quilting with Coats and Clark 100% cotton machine quilting thread and was sewn a quarter inch from the edge of the brown zigs. When the binding was finished I washed and dried and really like the wrinkly effect. The batting is warm and natural 100% that I picked up at JoAnns.

Now I'm working on a couple of Christmas Quilts for my nephews, photos to come soon.

Beautiful! Love the brown; it really sets off the other colors nicely.

Thanks, it's really one of my personal favorites out of the quilts I've made so far:)
