The Scrap Buster Quilt top has been transformed into the finished Zig Zag Rail Fence Quilt! As you can imagine I have spent many hours on finishing this quilt over the last few days; all I can say is thank goodness for the lazy mornings that follow the late evenings during these holidays.
I am pretty pleased with this simple but effective layout, and love the flow of bright colors in sharp contrast to the white zig zag lines, not to mention having put to use many of my much loved scrap fabrics. I am sure that you will recognize many of the designer quilting fabrics that have been put to good use in the making of this quilt.
I have kept the back of the quilt quite simple adding just a single strip of printed fabrics in a rainbow of colors which nicely complement the front of the quilt. The background fabric is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Ash.
And in an overall attempt to keep things simple I quilted this quilt with a cross-hatch design; straight diagonal lines running from edge to edge crossing at the mid-point of each block. I did have to mark lines (using a Hera Marker) to keep the lines running nice and straight.
I have used a black and white pin stripe fabric to bind the quilt ~ another "go to" fabric choice, and easy decision. It frames the quilt and complements the full range of colors used in this quilt.
I have updated my Etsy Store:
The good news is that I have also written a pattern for this quilt so you can make your very own Zig Zag Rail Fence Quilt should you wish to do so!

Alternatively, if you do not have an Etsy Account, you can purchase the pattern directly from the Red Pepper Quilts Pattern Store.
