Rustic Zigzag Wall Hanging

To create this zigzag-pattern wall hanging, begin laying out triangle-squares at the center of the quilt top, then mirror your fabric choices on each half as you move toward the top and bottom edges. Fabrics are from the Aubergine collection by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics.

Assemble Triangle-Squares

1. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line on wrong side of the dark gold print 3-7/8" squares.

2. Layer a marked dark gold print square atop a rust print 3-7/8" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of drawn line (Triangle-Square Diagram). Cut apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seams toward darker print, to make two A triangle-squares. Each triangle-square should be 3-1/2" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat Step 2 to make 24 A triangle-squares total (you will use 23).

4. Using 3-7/8" squares in fabrics indicated below, repeat steps 1–3 to make:
24 rust print and gold floral B triangle-squares
24 gold floral and dark blue print C triangle-squares
24 dark blue print and dark brown print D triangle-squares
24 dark brown print and gold print E triangle-squares
24 gold print and brown-and-red print F triangle-squares
24 brown-and-red print and navy blue floral G triangle-squares
