Red Zig Zag Quilt

This is a super simple quilt I made for my Modern Quilt Guild’s HST challenge. The only challenge was to make something using Half-Square Triangles. I actually had something completely different in mind – a Heart made from scrappy HSTs off-center on a solid background. But then I saw this red fabric with the trees (it is Henry Glass fabric, in case you were wondering), and it was in the 50% off section at my quilt shop. So I bought the main fabric, and the chevron, and the white and red, and put them all together very informally to make a simple quilt.

I like it. I think it is fun and bright and cheery. It isn’t very fancy, and the quilting is super simple – just stitch in the ditch around the pieced chevrons, and some straight lines across for the rest of the quilt. I bound it in the same red and white chevron that flanks the HSTs.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with this one… often when I’m working on quilts, I decide who I’ll give them to, or where in the house they will belong… but this little guy is homeless. For now.
