Fabric Tuesday: Woolies Flannel Quilt Finish!



I have to say while I consider this one of the less attractive quilts I've ever made, it is a perfect representation of why I make quilts and using what you have.  This quilt is nearly twin size at 72x84 and will be perfectly warm and snuggly in it's flannel goodness for TV watching in my basement here in Minnesota next winter. 


I had a stack of tan and brown flannels that I had no use in mind when purchased them on clearance when my LQS closed out their flannel section a few years ago.  The large creamy yardage that I used for the back was destined to be sheets for a toddler bed that was grown out of too quickly.  I purchased several blue woolies prints to complete the mix and used Terry Atkinson's Between Friends pattern from her Happy Hour book to make this simple quilt. ( I decided I did not want to mess with flannel and diagonal seams. )


Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting did the allover geometric quilting that you can see best above and I finished binding it by hand.  We've had a cold spring (just in the 50s yesterday) so I think this one won't even have to wait for winter to get used.

Very nice. I like the dark strip in each block-makes a great contrast. I like the color combo and it will make a great comforting winter quilt!
