Zig-Zag Baby {a finished quilt and tutorial!}

Today I'm finally able to share the baby quilt I recently finished.  This is Zig-Zag Baby and you can find a tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop today.

I made this quilt for a friend and his wife who were expecting their first baby together (and he arrived a bit early, so thankfully I had it done in time!)  They are a fun young couple that live in the city of Chicago.  I didn't want to do a traditional quilt for them, so I created this quilt with a clean and modern style.

This particular friend likes to tease me about being "country" and of course it doesn't bother me at all because growing up in the country is part of what has formed who I am today.  In my personal opinion, there isn't a better place to raise kids than out in the country.  So, even though this quilt is modern for his "city" baby, I just had to add a little bit of my "country" self and used chicken wire fabric for the back ;-)

To keep it soft and snuggly, I did minimal quilting on the zig-zags using Aurifil 50wt thread #2805.
