Salty ZigZag top done!

I completed this top for my cousin, Tammy, and I’m so glad. I love the quilt, but it’s one of those that I find boring. In other words, lots of same, small blocks to make. Ick.

Anyway, the pattern is from Moda BakeShop for layer cakes: You Zig, I’ll Zag quilt. I modified mine to fit my terrible sewing. The blocks were supposed to be 8.25″ and mine basically were, but most weren’t very square, so I squared them up and trimmed to 8″. I also added an extra, inner border at 2.5″ and increased the outer border from 7.5″ to 9″. This made my finished quilt 79″x79″. The original finished at 75″x75″.

Now to find a suitable backing (because I hate piecing backs).
And the picture before I forget…
