Z is for ZIG-ZAG
Zig Zag: A line or course that proceeds by sharp turns in alternating directions.
None of the pieces in this set of blocks from Athelstan, Iowa incorporate zig-zag stitches. Most of the blocks were entirely hand-stitched. A few blocks have some machine stitching on them: Betty and John Balch, and Leona and Darlene Booher.
However, Jean Marie Carroll’s block has a zig-zag design in the hat embellishment.
My favorite set of quilt blocks didn’t disappoint me; they carried me through the A to Z blog challenge, one letter at a time.
