    Hot Flash Quilt

    Okay I finished another one!

    I started this a year ago but set it aside to focus on another project. The pattern is called Hot Flash and is available online for free - I got it from a thread on here

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...k-t264698.html

    I asked a friend what size and colour would she want if I made her a quilt. She has a nautical theme in her living room and she said she would love a grey and blue lap quilt. She has a hint of red in there as well so I added a tiny red border. The backing on it is a great nautical fabric that I found (I forgot to take a picture).

    AAAAAND in the last two weeks I have finished two baby quilts and three lap quilts! And now I officially have no WIPs left! I can start something brand new this week

    NO MORE WIPS? WOW! I'm jealous! I can't imagine that situation -- I start new projects faster than I finish WIPs.

    I've posted each picture over the last few days and it has felt so good! They are probably starting to get buried but if you check out my profile I have pics of everything I've made. The last 5 are the newest ones!

    I started quilting 5 years ago (sewed garments before that) and I made a promise to only ever do one quilt at a time. I couldn't start a new quilt if I didn't finish the last one. And that lasted for three years...having 5 WIPs made me feel so outta control!! I feel like I can breathe again lol. Now to carefully choose the next pattern...

    Scrappies of this block pattern often cause me to shrink back, but it seems that you have tamed the beast somehow. This one looks lovely!

    love the way this one comes out. i need to make one like it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great colors. I love how complicated this looks, yet it is actually very easy :-) Nice work.
