Fun & Done

The title of this post is actually the name of the quilt pattern that I was introduced to at a guild meeting by a member that had used it!! I was so encouraged by the pattern as it enabled me to use scraps!!!! So, I reached into my stash and decided a flannel baby crib quilt would be fun to create!! I sent for the pattern and template. Here is my version. I ran out of the backing scraps and sub another fabric in two squares. I also only did 5 rows for the same reason!!! You will see the pattern stops! As you see in the photo on the top right,this is the block all trimmed. The strips are placed on top of a batting square and the backing all at once!!! Then they are all connected! I did find that using all flannel made folding the edges onto the square a little too bulky, I did trim some of the connecting seams. Always learning by doing!! It was fast and the easiest pattern I have done.
