When I created my own version of a “zigzag” quilt back in 2009 to feature my Good Folks collection, it was modeled after a beautiful, vintage red and white beauty. What I enjoyed about the particular style of piecework for that quilt was the single pattern shape of the right triangle put to such excellent use. Combined with the smaller triangle piece to cap off each “column” at the top and bottom, I was seduced by the directness of the approach. A relative novice to quiltmaking at the time, I was informed, of course, after sharing this pattern that the same pointy stripes could also be achieved with flying geese blocks, or with a combo of squares and rectangles. I still prefer the seams, and therefore “lines” that happen in this version, and how the triangle breaks up the print of selected fabrics. All that to say, I humbly have a favorite, and hope you enjoy the simple dynamic of this rhythmic and classic approach.
