Zipper Quilt by MSQC

I finally got to try the zipper quilt based off of the pattern by Missouri Quilt Company's Youtube video.  I wanted something for the office so I made it smaller.  I used 10 retangles instead of the 19 which I think they used.  It should fit well on the space I have in the office.  I haven't finished it yet since I want to see it on the wall at work first but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I might do another border on it but haven't made up my mind yet. I used a charm pack (Jungleland by Dan Morris) but since you cut it in half, I have plenty left over.  I had ordered a jelly roll of solid blacks which I've been using.  It was nice to have most of it all cut for me.  :)

I also have a charm pack from Windham Fabrics called Project Pink.  I think it would look cute in this type of a wall hanging and could probably use the black on it also.

I really wanted to try this pattern because I am thinking of doing a version of it with the blue African fabric that I have.   All these projects in to do them.  LOL.

I always liked the effect of this style piecing and it looks like fun. I never got around to it yet. I like it with black.
