I had a very good day yesterday with Jamie. We went over tons of stuff!! I was exhausted by the time I got home last night. My head with was just full of quilting ideas. It was hard to relax because quilting was just consuming my brain last night. I wasn’t sure what I should post about today. I decided I would share a UFO.
It just needs the border and to be quilted. It’s a super scrappy quilt, which I love scrappy quilts. It’s made of flannels and brushed cottons. I got the top all together last year when I went to shipshewana on my quilt retreat. I used fat quarters. The pattern is a simple pattern called “Crows Fence” taken from the book Laps From Fats by Ellen Replogle. This was a fast and easy quilt to make! I highly recommend the book for anyone looking to makes some lap quilts out of FQs!
Here is the quilt in the book.
I picked the FQs up from Lolly’s quilt shop sale store out of a boat!
During the sale all the rolled FQs are $1.00!! This was a super inexpensive top to make. This quilt will be for my family to cuddle up,watch television or just enjoy. I have a little confession to make. I don’t own one quilt anyone can lay under except for the quilts I’ve made the girls. Isn’t that awful?? Every quilt larger than a wall hanging or table topper, I have given as a gift. I don’t have any of the big quilts I’ve made. I have about 4 UFOs of quilt tops that just need borders. My goal this year is to finish them, quilt them and keep them all for my family and myself to enjoy!! I can’t wait to cuddle up with this quilt!!
Sarge and Scooter seem to be enjoying this quilt already!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I have to work, but in my spare time I plan on getting some quilting done on Annie!
