Four Squared Finish

Just as promised, I have another finish to show!  Last night, the power was off for several hours after a nasty storm.  I decided it was a good time to bind by flashlight!

I quilted with a simple meander this time around.  For the backing, I found a nice, fitting flannel fabric in my stash.  I purchased this more than a year ago after a Joann Fabric Christmas sale.  Super cheap and super soft!

I look forward to putting some yardage down as "used" in my stash report this weekend!  Time to get back in black!  I also have plans to start a "cat mat" this week, with the hopes of finishing it in time for the Pets on Quilts Show.

Here is my shorter list of WIPs!  Looks like I am down to three now!  Well, ok, I am planning on starting a new one today.  That doesn't mean it has to be on the list yet!

1. Orca Bay (top is being assembled)
2. Four-Squared (waiting for binding to be sewn down)
3: Hexie: Part Deux (looooonnnng way from completion)
4: Charlotte's Baskets (top is done. waiting for hand quilting)

What are you all up to today?  Today I have a quilt to start, a trip to Target, and perhaps an Insanity workout!


  1. What a fun back! Soft flannel makes a cuddle quilt even more cuddly - and have been there with the flashlight bit, too!

  2. Wow! That is GREAT backing fabric - I don't remember ever seeing that at my local Joann's (pouting). I love that quilt pattern and I have enough 2 1/2" squares sewn into twosies to get started on it next. I love the anticipation of what I'm going to work on next.

  3. What a lovely finish! I'd love to back some quilts with cozy flannel, but as a hand quilter, I worry that it would be too hard to quilt through. Maybe if I did some Big Stitch quilting with embroidery floss. Now there's a thought...

  4. What a great finish! Great colors and design! A finish is always good!
