Zigzags, and streak of lightening quilts are on my (very long) favorites list. When I saw Sujata's http://therootconnection.blogspot.com/zigzag, I just couldn't get it out of my mind - oh, the possibilities! The plan for these blocks, that I just completed today, are to add a border and use it as a backing. Vicki has been making pieced backs for some time, and, it is such a smart idea (2 for1!), that it was time to try my hand at it. This pattern would work in any combination of fabrics, and there are many examples on other blogs. Wouldn't it make a great Halloween quilt? It just makes me want to start another!
