A few leftover pieces and a cute pattern and, Ta-dah! You have a quilt!
This idea came from “Another Bite of Schnibbles.” The pattern is called Roundabout.
I added a narrow outer border using the background fabric. The top finishes at 34″ square.
Another one in the to-be-quilted pile.
Things are smoothing out a little here, and winter has arrived. So, I am have more personal time and the snow provides a good excuse for fewer outside chores. (Yep, that mountain really is the view directly north from my house.)
Because of that, I have another finished flimsy: Three Wishes.
I resized the pattern to 2/3 the original size. If I did it again I might go for 3/4, just to make it a larger lap size.
I hope to schedule some quilting time to finish it before the end of the year, but at least I have made it this far.
The Speed Squares quilt is a FINISH!
Partially cut ahead of time, I finished cutting and started piecing last Tuesday. Pieced and assembled Wednesday and Thursday. Quilted Friday. Bound Saturday.
Gifted today (Monday) to a teaching friend who needed a quilt, I’m sure.
ps–Finishes at 50″ x 70″ (20 squares by 28 squares). Squares 3″ unfinished. Color theory: 50% background (obviously), remaining half 2/3 blue and 1/3 red.
