Ups and Downs Quilt

100 9-inch blocks... 700 squares and 200 half-square triangles... all come together in an amazing quilt.

Once I finished with the quilt top I sent it off to Joanna for quilting and asked her to surprise me. I was blown away when I got it back last week! This is the second quilt she's worked on for me, and I just love them both to pieces.

The Backing


At 90 x 90, there isn't a definitive top/bottom - left/right, and now I can't decided which way I like it better... with the zig-zags running across the quilt or running from top to bottom...
