Lightning Streak Quilt pattern:

Try red and white, or blue and pink, for this old zigzag pattern. To simplify your cutting, first cut 4 inch squares, then divide each square into 2 triangles by cutting along the diagonal. Sew the triangles into strips, alternating colors.

Then sew strips together as shown; the dotted lines indicate seams. Triangles of the darker color will form an interesting border along the side edges of the quilt (see illustration).

When cutting fabric, allow for seams.
