Do you know why I love Kaelin for posting this photo??? Guess.

That photo brought my one true sewing love back to me - the zig zag stitch. I adore the zig zag stitch. It can do no wrong in my eyes. And I had FORGOTTEN about it!!

Ziggy zag and I go way back. I used it to bind and quilt a little MMM project a few months ago.

And then I used it INSTEAD of binding on a mug rug.

And then, somehow, it slipped my mind! I don't even know how that it possible. But Kaelin, dear, dear Kaelin, brought my ziggy zag back. And since then I have finished some quilts that were languishing on my couch, waiting for me to bind them.

Ziggy Zag - I will never forget you again. You will always hold a special place on my quilts.
