Like a hole in the head

I needed to start a new project like I need a hole in my head.

But the cutting was so fast. And the piecing was so fast. Now I just need to put the sashing all around.

It’s like it never happened. Well, I might play around with the layout because I can’t quite get the pattern here, so that may take a tiny bit of extra time…



I think this might qualify as my Christmas quilt for this year.

    I was thinking of starting a betting ring on how long it would take before you made a quilt from the book….then I thought that no-one would take the long odds so it wasn’t worth my while 🙂 ha ha
    looks lovely as per usual……

  15. Awesome!!!!!!!

    Love the quilt, I had been eyeing that one off as an easy finish as well. Still waiting on my book 😦 and more of my kaffe to come. Any ideas as what to make with all my kaffe scraps?
