As the temperatures start to fall with the leaves I think of cozy quilts. And nothing says cozy like flannel! The softness the warmth, the way it feels on a chilly winter night is such a comfort.
I just happen to have two flannel quilts on my Finish-A-Long list, and another on my Wanna-do list so now is the time to make progress.
All of my log cabin blocks are constructed and sewn together. I’ve found my borders. I’ve pieced my backs. I think I’ve made enough binding. It’s time for them to visit the quilter. These are going to be just toasty with soft sweet wool batting in them.
And that Wanna-do quilt – well these Bulls Eye blocks are moving along nicely. I’ve never done anything quite like this, where you just cut and sew and pay no mind to things being matched up or not. Initially I was a bit uncomfortable with it, then it got to be rather fun. It is nice to just DO something without overthinking it. And it’s wonderful to see some of these flannels that I’ve held onto find a place to shine.
This pattern comes from Quilts From Aunt Amy put out by Country Threads.
Once I have completed these quilts, I will be going through my flannels and thinning the collection, as it is time to do some destashing. If you are creating a scrappy happy flannel quilt and are looking to add to you stash, check out our Etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/vintagevacouple.
Stay warm and safe and dry.
