Flipped Out

Waa hoo, another finish for OPAM!
Do pre purchased Layer cakes count as part of your stash cos if they do I can honestly claim that this little sweety, ‘Flipped Out’, was made entirely from my stash?015
I’ve never made this block before and if it wasn’t for a friend displaying a quilt with the same block I wouldn’t have.  Hers looked really warm and ‘homey’ so with that thought hanging around in the back of my head I wanted to give it a good – easy 017peasy.  Even the quilting was a ‘doddle’ to do, just straight lines with lots of corners – no worries.  I added a few prairie points in one corner, again something I’ve never done before and again super easy.
Woo hoo, another finish for OPAM and something to keep me busy while I wait for Chookyblue’s SAL, ‘Tis the Season’ to begin.
Not long now, are your needles at the ready?
