Roundabout Baby Flimsy

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.

Three Wishes Flimsy

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.
