I've been a good girl this week and stuck with my plan to get Rainbow Zigzags quilted. Lots of scraps were used in the construction of this quilt!
I quilted along all the peaks and valleys - the low volume rows were done with an off-white Gutermann thread and I used a Sulky rainbow variegated thread for the rainbow rows.
The pink row was one of the last to be completed, so of course I have to feature it for the RSC January color of the month!
Friday afternoon I trimmed the quilt and made the binding using leftovers from the backing. It's a pretty light blue wide backing from Connecting Threads called Cobblestones. Today's job (Saturday) will be to get the machine sewing of the binding completed.
Woo hoo! Almost a finish!
Stitching the final step of the binding by hand will be my Sunday job.
This Little Penguin is pretty happy to be finishing up a quilt!

I have always loved your zigzags and thought to add them to my RSC list but have 3 already - maybe next year?
Few things feel better than finishing up the last row of quilting! What a great finish. Love the happy zig zag pattern.
The zigzags look great!
OH, I see you are quilting the zig zag quilt. when i first looked, I thought, "she started another zig zag?" lol Good for you.
Loooove it!!! and the featured pink row!!!
That quilt has turned out so nice!
Your PINK Zig Zag row is SEW pretty, Diann!! Almost done with the quilt, now. Happy Slow Stitching day on Sunday!
I don't usually like 'zigzag'/chevron quilts but I REALLY like yours. Now I'm tempted to do one myself :) (scrappy, of course). Great job!
Beautiful and congratulations for being a good girl!
Pretty finish! Love how this quilt turned out. Enjoy the binding stitching.
Yay for sticking with your goal, and I'm sure it feels great to have a finish! It's a pretty one!
This has been one of my favorites of your quilts last year. I'm glad to see it's almost done. Enjoy your Sunday slow stitching the binding, if you can wait that long.
I love it! I am hoping to have a finished quilt this week! It's so exciting to see all your hard work come to a finish!!!
A smiley face and gold star for being a good girl and a smiley face and gold star for your quilt!
This is such a beautiful quilt, and you are almost at the finish line, well done! I've always liked this design and pondered about stitching it this year for RSC. Maybe next year instead,
Very exciting! Looking forward to seeing the final photo shoot!
Lovely quilt! I love your quilting, simple and making beautifuly the zigzag poping. Love the penguin (of course) dancing a happy dance and the binding holder ;))
I have enjoyed seeing this quilt throughout the piecing process and will be sad not to see more! I'm sure you are thrilled it's finished though!
Congratulations! The zigzag quilt looks wonderful. I really need to try using different colors of thread for quilting. Enjoy the hand stitching today!
And what a pretty quilt it is!
Enjoy your binding today... so fun!
I love the variety of fabrics in this quilt. Enjoy the hand stitching of the binding today. WooHoo!
Rainbow zigzags is lovely! Congratulations on sticking to your plan. Love seeing the little penguins! Happy stitching!
Absolutely love rainbow quilts and zig zags are awesome. Beautiful!
A lovely zigzag rainbow quilt! So colourful!
Rainbow Zigzags is beautiful. I love all that happy colour and pattern zigzagging across the quilt. Such a good idea to use variegated thread on the the coloured parts.
Sounds like you have a wonderful plan for Sunday. Hope you have a good movie picked out. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!
I admired your zig zag blocks when you began assembling them. Hooray for a finished quilt!
Congrats on the near finish!
