Spring Training - by Ashley B for Project QUILITNG - Zig Zag Challenge

I am calling my project "Spring Training." I am headed to Phoenix

this weekend to catch some baseball, and I figured I needed a warm

weather shirt in the old school Brewers' colors to wear down there. I

used traditional zig zaggy pattern for the bust area, elastic on the

back to make it a bit fitted and a tie that can be worn as a halter

or tied in the back tube top style. I haven't quilted since middle

school, and it shows in my corners. I just winged the whole top, only

measuring out my squares for the quilted part. I started this project

by making the quilted portion without knowing what I was ultimately

going to create. After playing around with some different bag ideas,

but decided I would probably get more use out of a top. It is far

from perfect, but it makes me happy!

I am proud to be a part of this great project, even though I only

finished this last challenge. Oh, and I am crafting in the mountains

of Naches, Washington.
