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. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out A, B, C, D, E, F, and G triangle-squares in 14 horizontal rows. Half the rows will have 11 triangle-squares and half will have 12.

2. Sew together triangle-squares in each row. Press seams in one direction.
Rows with 11 triangle-squares should be 31/2×331/2" including seam allowances.
Rows with 12 triangle-squares should be 31/2×361/2" including seam allowances.

3. Center each row of 11 triangle-squares on a row with 12; the longer rows should extend past the shorter rows by 1-1/2" on each end. Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction.

4. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, trim extended triangle-squares along long edges so quilt center is 33-1/2x42-1/2" including seam allowances.
