Lovin' "No Triangles"!

I saw a picture on pinterest of a zig-zag or chevron style quilt that was no triangles.  The link on the pin did not work, but the picture was enough for me to go ahead and jump in.  I have 1 baby quilt I need for a baby shower next week, and 1 I wanted to make for Christmas.

Its put together by making a two strip block, and turning the block in each row to form a zig-zag pattern.  My background and binding color will be gray, I decided on a 4" finished block, so here are my 2 1/2" strips cut for quilt 1 and quilt 2.


Sewing on my gray strips to my print strips looks like this . . .

and then cut into 4 1/2" squares . . .

Layout my design, left, right, left . . .



After laying out my design I began assembling the rows together . . .


Tops are ready to be quilted.


I love how these came out and how easily they went together.  I'll be quilting #1 over the weekend, and #2 next week.  Baby quilt #2 will be my first item off my Christmas list.  I have a few more Christmas items lined up and waiting for me to get to them.  There will be a lot of Christmas work going on over the next few weeks :)
