The Zakka Block Quilt - A Lovely Year of Finishes

The Zakka Block Quilt top is finished and I'm so happy with it that I'm loading this post with lots of photos of it! I used nearly two charm packs of Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander I'd bought from Mad about Patchwork and I love how they look with the Essex Yarn Dyed in Black.



Set my goal for a Lovely Year of Finishes here and after an initial mistake piecing, all the rest of the top went smoothly!


This is my first quilt for The Library Project over at Adrienne's Chezzetcook Quilts and the quilt top was my goal for March for A Lovely Year of Finishes, so I'm linking up here:

  10. What a fun quilt top! I would have been chicken to hang it over a rail like that; with my luck, wind would have carried it right down into the water. So I'm envious your photo shoot turned out so well!
