Flannel goodness

 My youngest son just moved back to our town.  I went over to see his new apartment and there on his bed was a quilt I forgot I made. Gee it must have been 7 or 8 years ago.

Of course him being a boy and me being a mom I knew it needed washing.  So I brought it home and washed it, now it is so soft and snuggly, and snapped some pictures of it.  I have lots of quilts that I never did take pics of.
It warmed my heart that he is still using it.

Don't know why I haven't sewn with flannel for so long but as soon as I get some of my PIPs finished I am going to make a flannel quilt for my bed.

Maybe since flannel is so bulky and I usually quilt on my little Bernina I gave it up. I'm thinking a quilt as you go flannel quilt is in my future.  Any one tried that?


  1. My first try at FMQ was with a flannel quilt. Good thing they weren't all that difficult! I love your zigzag quilt below. I made one similar last spring too!

  2. Flannel works great for QAYG...I've done a couple and was happy with the result.
