Scrappy Hats Quilt!

I'm a little slow, but I finally have my Scrappy Hats quilt done! I got hung up on doing the binding, my least favorite part of completing a quilt. I also decided to make a flanged binding instead of the traditional binding method I wrote in the pattern. I'm really happy with how it turned out. In time to display for Christmas. I'll actually have it out all winter long since we'll have snow until March, it's Minnesota. I love how happy and bright it turned out. It'll brighten up those winter days when it's dreary outside. How is your quilt coming along? Would love to see pictures! Remember to share your progress on Instagram #scrappyhatsqal @quiltdoodledesigns

I used tiny black buttons for the snowman eyes.

My happy face when all those buttons are finally sewn on. 

For the binding I did a flanged binding out of green and red to finish the edge of my quilt off. I do like making flanged bindings, it just takes a bit of extra time. 

I took a quick picture outside in the snow. Do you see the snowflakes I quilted in the plain squares. I have an embroidery machine and found some quilting files that were perfect for this quilt.

 I hope that you enjoyed this little mini QAL. I'm off to my studio to get some more holiday sewing done. It's that time of year that Santa's workshop is in full swing.

Have a great day and I hope you find some time to do some stitching.

Happy quilting,
Cindy and Belvedere

  1. I love your Scrappy Hats quilt!! Thank you so much for creating all these patterns!!!

  2. The scrappy snowman quilt turned out just darling! I do like the quilted snowflakes you did on the background blocks. I was thinking of doing something in those blocks as well and now I think I know what it is! Very cute. And, love all of the colors. Thank you again for doing this QAL. What a fun thing to do and participate in!

  3. It is adorable! The flanged binding was just right and those snowflakes add a really nice touch. A job well done, and finished!
