A Couple of Firsts

Here's my version of "Bonnie Lassie" from the book by Jen Kingwell, Quilt Lovely. I really enjoyed taking my time with this one. A few blocks here and there, and soon 99 had accumulated in my stack. It's totally made from scraps with a few pieces gleaned from the scrap pile at my quilt guild. I love remembering each fabric and the other places I have used it: a real trip down memory lane.

The firsts are -- my first quilt with an on point layout: this adds so much movement to the design. The directions made it quite easy. And this is my first finished quilt with a flannel back. The flannel makes it Very Cozy and gives much more weight as well. We will be cuddling with this one watching TV this winter. It has scraps of wool batting cobbled together to make the wadding. The only purchase was the flannel.

My 4 year old granddaughter helped with stitching down the binding. She's happy to tell you!

The backing is a flannel from Joanne's. I couldn't resist the Eifel Towers and the scooters.
