Working on my PHD: Finished Flannel Hopscotch Quilt

I want to post some updates of the Flannel Hopscotch quilt that I finished this week.  It turned out great and I'm really happy with my new queen sized bed quilt.

I was able to finish hand sewing my binding during our down time this week.  The striped binding adds a lot of character to the edge of the quilt. 

The quilt is very heavy and super warm!  I will definitely be using this on those cold nights this winter! 

Now that this quilt has been completed and stored away, I've already brought out my next project half done to get wrapped up. I brought the start of an up north themed lap quilt to the local quilt shop and purchased some fabric for borders and binding. 

I want the top to be bigger, but not a full bed quilt like the flannel hopscotch quilt.

This quilt top I started with a panel and two charm packs.  Very simple design, but the colors and up north theme will compliment my home very well.

I am still trying to decide how I want to lay out the inner border (borders?).  I could let it be simple and do one skinny inner border and the deer and leaves for the outer border.  I'm toying with the idea of adding a pieced border though.  Hmm... 

I picked up enough of each print to make most anything work, so we'll see where this quilt top takes me!  Feel free to comment your ideas on how to finish off this quilt.  I always love the input of another quilter!

I'm linking up to Work In Progress Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.  A great blog and a great link party to share those projects half done with quilty friends!


  1. Lovely design for using the panel pieces. The charm squares complement them beautifully. Enjoy your flannel quilt.
