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.
