I spent the last few days working on a new quilt. I don’t often make a new quilt because I have so many vintage quilt tops to finish, but this fabric was just too good to pass up. The warm fall colors and the feel of the fabrics are so great. The pictures don’t do the fabrics justice…in real life they are just amazing.
I did find that sewing flannel is different…it stretches. Next time I do a flannel quilt I think I will starch the fabric to give it more body before I cut and piece it.
This finished at 70″ x 90″ and I have a nice piece of tweedy flannel for the backing and wool batting to use. I cant wait to get it hand quilted! It is going to be a very nap inducing quilt.
