Tesselated Zig Zag with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Feb-2017
Valerie selected 5 different dotty fabrics to create this tesselated zig-zag quilt.
The quilt is made simply from half-square triangle units, we won’t scare you with how many! Valerie cut 4.5inch strips from her fat 1/4’s, then she used either thangles to create the units or the EZ Easy Angle triangle, both of which allow you to make these units quickly and accurately, and using these products mean you don’t have to think about any maths.
The trick for this quilt is to pay attention to the fabrics as you select them for sewing, the rest then is easy.
