Hometown Zig-Zag Quilt and the Biggest Announcement Yet!

Ta-da!  Another finish :)  And this one took less than 2 weeks start to finish.  Thanks to everyone for your nice comments when I was designing this one.
I'm slow to jump on trends, but I do love how this zig-zag turned out.
The back is a fun red polka-dot and I didn't let any of those HSTs go to waste! 

For the quilting, I did straight line zig zags only through the cream areas.
Hand-sewn binding in a coordinating gray print.


Details
Size: approx. 39" x 39"
Fabrics: Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda
Pattern: HST arranged in zig-zags
Quilting: straight-line zig-zags

Available now in the shop

OK, so are you ready for the big announcement?!?



Maybe I should rephrase that..... am I ready for it?!?



Ready or not....

Yes, we're expecting our first baby - due in March.  We are very excited, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little terrified too. I have already started the nesting process which brings me to the next order of business:

I'm trying to downsize my fabric stash.  Please take a peek in my fabric shop - I have Art Gallery Fabricsvintage sheets, and lots of destash & scrap packs for sale.  And more coming soon!


Linking up at Freshly Pieced, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and Crazy Mom Quilts.
