Some of my quilting readers may be familiar with Pat Sloan. She’s a bit of quilting celebrity. Mom and I spend a fair amount of time in her facebook group.
She runs a lot of quilt-alongs, and when this one came up, I thought it would be fun and quick. It’s a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop, called Flapjacks.
It uses fat eighths, and I just happened to have a bundle that would be perfect for it.
Last week, Burton and got them all cut up. And this weekend, we finally took the time to put them all together.
With chain piecing, they go together pretty quick. And because I was making the crib size, it wasn’t long before I had them all done.
Burton helped my find the perfect layout, trying to distribute the colours as evenly as possible.
Then a little seaming, and a plain border later…
Burton was pretty darn happy about the final result! I’ve got to admit, it’s pretty darn cute.
But then, I love a good farmyard!
I have some fun cow fabric for the back, but I forgot to take a picture, so you’ll just have to wait for the finished quilt to see it!
