Frolic Zig-Zag Quilt

I used this tutorial at A Quilt is Nice to do the zig-zag blocks.

This is my newest quilt. I used two charm packs from the Frolic line for this. This quilt actually inspired a few recent purchases for items to bring a bit of color into our house. I love the combination of the yellows, greens, blues and orange in this quilt. I'm pulling colors from this quilt to do a little redecorating.

I have wanted to do a zig-zag quilt for a while. I really like the way it turned out, but it was a beast to quilt.

On the back I used up almost all my fabric from the front borders and binding. I had a total of about 6 inches of fabric leftover. This is definitely a record for me. Usually I have a pile leftover. I wasn't sure about doing the backing in brown, but I like how it turned out because it shows the quilting.
