As I mentioned the other day, I could not resist making another Flagstones block with leftover nine patches from Carolina Crossroads. It went together super quickly and was really fun to turn into a mug rug! The pattern is in Bonnie Hunter's column in Quiltmaker March/April 2014.
You can really see the quilting on the back. I chose this fabric because I figured I could use it to quilt. I just followed the random wavy lines and I will say it is the first thing I have ever quilted that I enjoyed and was perfectly happy with when I was done. I think the next baby quilt I try to do I may choose a backing that helps me out like this one did!
I even hand bound it which was really relaxing. I don't usually do that anymore because it aggravates my thumb (and as a sign language interpreter I try to have my hands be pain free!). Something this small is easy enough to do and reminded me of days gone by when I would hand bind my quilts!
