This would not have helped these unfortunate people, but might help someone

I have thought of making a few and trying to sell them on Etsy, if they

Will be seeing her soon and hope she likes her new quilt. I used black flannel for the backing for extra warmth.
This pattern was from a class taken at Quilt Guild last year.
Thanks for looking!

I chose Hobbs 80/20 batting and quilted it with what is know as freehand "Terry Twist" stitching. The quilt measures 87 by 106. It is also the first quilt that I attached the binding on with my longarm. Haven't yet stitched

The pattern is called Indian Hatchet--I found it in an old Patchwork book I found at a used book store. I adapted it to paper piecing and increased the size to a 12 inch block.

I'll make a few more like this and then some hot pads... those should be more fun because you can vary the blocks and the fabrics!
Edit: The sides aren't really crooked, I guess I just didn't lay it down flat on the floor properly...

You sew the 6.5" snowballs alternately with the 9-patches, and viola! 6" finished blocks, and make as many as you need.
