Look what the cold weather made me do

I bought a fat quarter set of Katie Jump Rope from Twiddletails a while ago just because I liked it and really not knowing what I was going to do with it. I spent ages looking at quilt options and just could not find anything I fancied. Then I got this fabulous book just after Christmas but who cares cos its the most lovely book ever and full of things you could easily make any time of the year.

In said book was a simple patchwork blanket backed with fleece and held with tiny buttons instead of quilting. Now I have never been one for the quilting, I just like the piecing; so that made it just what I needed.
Here is my take on it and just right size to keep me warm whilst its still so chilly in the evenings. Keeps you warm while you are sewing the 70 buttons on too. Keep warm and craft. Perfect project if you ask me.
I have another one cut out already because I enjoyed it so much.
