I kind of wanted to sit and knit tonight but after a couple days of being lazy I decided it was time to make some progress. I pieced a backing and loaded the next top to be quilted on the longarm and I got the binding sewn on and hand stitched down on the 16 patch quilt.
While there’s nothing difficult about piecing a 16 patch quilt, I like this variation because it’s easy to use fat quarters and with the larger blocks, it goes quickly.
I found a free pattern online for this quilt several years ago but that blog is no longer active. After a lot of searching, I found an archived link but I have no idea how long it will be active so if you are interested, make sure you save a copy for yourself.
The backing is a flannel fish print – doesn’t it look good? I love finding the perfect backing in my stash.
