You may remember a while back I was playing on the design wall with flannel scraps that I cut to standard sizes a long long time ago. Rather than make one bigger quilt I opted to turn those into one medium and one baby quilt, which are finally done!
The baby quilt is 32" square. Rather than traditional binding I folded the backing over to the front and sewed it down with a decorative stitch. Both these quilts are exceptionally cozy due to the flannel.
The larger quilt measures 64" square. I stippled them both, the larger one with a tighter stipple. Even though I used a fatter-than-usual seam allowance I still worry about the flannel fraying so the heavier quilting will provide support to the fabrics.
I think my mom has her eye on this bigger quilt for a little girl undergoing treatment for leukemia. That's going to mean a lot of trips through industrial washer-dryers at high heat so the extra quilting is important for that reason, too.
There are lots of fun kid-friendly print in these quilts, some are ooooold. The Tasmanian devil flannel dates from when my mom made me some pajama pants when I was about 6 and I got to pick my fabric.
No feeling better than cleaning out a box of scraps and turning them into a quilt or two! I hope you're all having a productive week and a great weekend.
