Z is for Zig Zag! Antique Quilts

Z is for Zig Zag - the powerful and popular block setting. If you ever want to make a WOW quilt, try using zig zag blocks, setting, or borders.  Here are five from my collection  -part of my Antique Stars Show. (Last quilt is from Michigan's Mary Schafer collection.)

Variable Stars in Zig Zag setting

Cactus Basket in Zig Zag setting

1880s Wild Goose Chase in Zig Zag set - Michigan

1830s Variable Star on right with vertical Zig Zag setting

Southeastern Pennsylvania - Bethlehem Star with Tulips and Zig Zag border, circa 1870

Mary Schafer Quilt Collection - 1870s quilt top that she finished. Triangles staggered to create Zig Zags
