Zippety Do Dah!



I just couldn’t leave it rolled up for long.  I had been studying a quilt pattern that was mesmerizing me because if you look at it one way it is squares then if you look at it another way it is diamonds.  I love when designs do that.  I decided that the pattern in Jelly Roll Quilts was meant to use the Zippety Do Dah roll.  The only problem I have now is that no one seems to have any more of it and I need a border, backing and bias.  I am thinking of going with a simple beige or tan border and a navy or red binding.  That way the focus is on the center.  I almost have this all sewn together.  My points don’t match exactly, but I kind of like it that way.  It is just plain fun! 

I really didn’t need another project, but then again maybe I did because it really made me feel happy making it!

Keep it fun!

Cute quilt! The pattern looks a lot like "Strip Search" by GE Designs, but with more points to match!
