Nothing on my design wall - I just finished sewing the binding on two more flannel quilts, ready for donation to my guild's community quilts program!
Once again, I used one of Bonnie Hunter's patterns from, called
Hidden Spools.

 It is made with "light and dark" 2 inch strips, and although the finished blocks have bias edges, it is a quick way to use leftovers.  I made several strip sets, and found out I had more than I needed for the first quilt, so I made a second smaller one.
In among the flannel scraps were some leftover pieces from previous "use it up" patterns, so I stitched them together to make the pieced borders for each quilt.  Both have a cotton backing fabric.  One of the previous ones I made was flannel on top and back, and I thought it was a bit heavy for a baby.

Head over to Judy's blog, Patchwork Times, to see all this week's creativity!


  1. love the quilt - I don't know why I have never made one of Bonnie's quilts - I love the way they look and I have made quilts with hundreds of pieces in them - I think I need to get busy with a pattern of hers one day.

  2. Love it. I need to try one of those one of these days.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
