Few Answers for Painted Zigzag

If you missed my previous post, refer to it while reading this.

Just want to do a quick post and answer few of the questions I have been asked.

This illustration shows how your zigzag would look if all the blocks were made the same.
I kind of like it. It almost replicates the angle of lightning in stormy weather.

To make my hsts I used even 4" squares, cut them diagonally and after sewing the hsts, trimmed them down to 3.5". The square then finished at 3". The block measures Nine inch square.

I am going to the Hershey show today. If you are going to be there, please say hello. 


  1. I was wondering what size HSTs you'd used and it's interesting to see your diagram. Have fun at the Hershey show!!!

  2. tell us about the show, what did you think???
    thanks for the illustration yes I am still tempted :)

  3. You gotta stop...I'm SUPPOSED to be working on a quilt for my daughter to take to college but when I saw the 'painted zigzag' I just HAD to try a 'couple' of blocks...I'm up to 20. It's TOO MUCH FUN to mess in the stash and find the fabrics. THANKS!

  4. I just love that quilt design, thanks for the measurements. I wish I didn't have to sleep. I hope the show was fabulous.

  5. This is a great quilt design-lots of possibilities. I love your zigzag quilt in the previous post. wow!
    best, nadia

  6. Your Streak of Lightning quilt is just superb, love all those flowery fabrics--dazzling! Julierose
