Zig Zag Path Quilt Block Pattern

Here's a quilt block pattern with a dizzying design. Not so curvy as a drunkard's path block, the Zig Zag Path Quilt Block Pattern is easy to sew using squares and half-square triangles. The bi-colored "path" on this quilt block seems to spin down toward the dark square at its center. When they come together in a quilt, the paths in each block seem to interlock or, when the every second block is rotated, take on a starry look. For an even more dazzling effect, swap out one of the plain fabrics shown here for a patterned one.

How beautiful is this? Make some matching shams and use it as a bed covering. I love teal and I love teal even more combined with coral. I may try this and change the navy to coral. I also love that such a beautiful pattern is a pattern that can be completed in an evening. It just doesn't get much better than this!

Wow--such a stunning block. This would make the most amazing bed quilt! Can't wait to finish it!
