Primary Zig Zags

I finished a new quilt top today. This one came together quite quickly. The top itself is quite simple. I plan to echo the zig zag in the solid red portion and I think that will really make the quilt. That is the hope anyway! It will be baby sized. I like the little projects. :)

I've got the idea for this quilt as I was making the Earth Tones quilt last fall. I bought the fabric around that time and it has been sitting around waiting for me to have some time to start the top. It is flannel so it should be quite cozy when it is finished.

I used the flying geese tutorial Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts linked to a couple weeks ago. Since I've had this idea for so long I've had my eye out for flying geese patterns for awhile and this one is the best one I've seen. It has no fabric waste- which is really nice. Other ones are confusing or have a lot of waste.

Now off to start planning my Christmas projects since my stack of Merry & Bright fabric came this week! Exciting!
