Two new tops

Last month my sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I decided to make her a quilt to use during chemo treatments.  I went through my stash and put together a top.  The backing is a zebra print flannel.  I didn't do heavy quilting because I wanted it to remain soft and cuddly.

Here's a close up so you can see how it's pieced.  I could have done
a 9-patch with two other blocks, but I wanted to keep that one fabric
a single piece.  There is a block to construct and it goes together
very quickly.

If you followed my Bonnie Hunter mystery, you'll remember I changed out one fabric and ended up making the quilt smaller.  I came across the extra pieces and decided to put them together - somehow.  The final result is pretty busy, but it's bright and cheery for a child's quilt.

Thanks for checking in.


  1. I'm sure you sister-in-law will love the quilt. I love how you did the 9-patch. And what a great idea for the extra pieces -it will make a great childs quilt. You've been a busy lady.

  2. Love your quilts. So nice to make one for your sis in law
