Pansy Lap Quilt – Finished Flimsy

When I was in a local fabric store a month ago, I fell in love with a pansy fabric that was marked down to clear it out as there was less than 2m left on the bolt. I was then on the search for the perfect pattern that would allow me to showcase the gorgeous print with minimal cutting. I found the pattern I was looking for in the Dec/Jan 2011 issue of Quick Quilts (page 14 – Manor House designed by Kari Nichols). This one finishes at approximately 53″ x 70″–a perfect lap size.

I am working on the “reward” system right now. If I finish an old UFO, then I get to work on a reward. A reward for me is a simple project – something new – something that will qualify as quick gratification because it is fast – something that I can finish quickly so my reward doesn’t turn into another UFO. This pansy project was my reward for finishing my Christmas Patience Corners to the flimsy stage.

I wasn’t quite ready to call it a night last night when I had the lap quilt finished so I made this matching candle mat (still a flimsy). This is Sandra E. Andersen’s design and is called Candlelight.

This is a picture of the mountain that I can see from our living room window. We woke up to a light dusting of snow on the ground this morning. The snow on our lawn was gone before noon, but the snow remains on the nearby mountains.

  1. Gorgeous, Norma! Really turned out much prettier than I thought when you pointed me to the pattern.

    Well done—and a candlemat with the leftovers even.

    What is next for you in the UFO pile?
