Another one of the group HeartStrings tops sent by AnnG is quilted. This one looks busy in the photo but I love this quilt in person. It looks great. Pantograph is Happy Times and its #2 of 21 to be quilted by the end of November.

Last night I started a hat and worked on it a little while this afternoon too. I’m tempted to start another blanket but I know most of my nights will be spent binding for the next several weeks so hats are good projects to pick up and put down and I usually work on hats around this time of year anyway.

  • Pattern is Cobblestones – found free on Ravelry
  • Yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash
  • Needle size is 7
  • Cast on 88 and knit 1.5 inches for the brim.
That’s my favorite knitting app on the iPad – Knit Companion.

I also trimmed and got the bindings on the first two quilts – they’re ready to hand stitch – and I pieced a backing and #3 is ready to load on the longarm tomorrow. I’ll work on binding after Keith goes to bed tonight.


  1. I love, love the bright colors in the quilt. Often a quilt needs something to set off the scraps, but this is just wonderful the way it is!

  2. Good plan on not starting a blanket. It is tough to ignore the fun and easy to do the necessary.

    That quilt is fun and bright. My granddaughters would love it so there is a perfect charity out there.

  3. That quilt is beautiful!! I know it will brighten someone’s day when they receive it.

    I made the Cobblestone hat a couple years ago. I loved it but it was huge! I’m going to use your cost on of 88 and give it another try. Thanks!!!

  4. That is really a FUN quilt. I’ve made several quilts using that block, but haven’t made them with a colorful scrappy color scheme like this one. But I may have to give that a try next time because the blocks look great. More inspiration from you!! Thanks!
