I'm pleased to present my latest quilt, Mango Salsa Zig A Zag. The fabric is from the Mango Salsa strip pack by Island Batiks, with another Island Batiks fabric in the border. The pattern is by Quilt In A Day.
This is bright and fun! I love working with Island Batiks! The colors are vibrant and the fabrics are silky, with very little fraying. It's a lovely tight weave, which means more threads per inch (high thread count). It's smooth and so easy to work with! I added some batiks from my stash for the setting triangles and inner border.
I used Aurifil Mako 50 wt for piecing, and quilted with color 3817, a great variegated, on the top, with 2255, a great brick red for the borders, and 2315 in the bobbin, to blend with the peachy backing.
