Flannel Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I had originally intended to quilt only the small squares, but in the end I embroidered in the hoop the full 9 1/2" block using a 200 X 200 mm quilting hoop. I used Aurifil thread - this is the second time I've used it and it was trouble free - both top thread and bobbin. The variegated grey thread blended nicely with the range of colours. I will definitely get more of this. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I hated working with the flannel - I know lots of people love using it, but I even gave away the remnants because I have no intention of ever working with flannel again!

What you will need

  • thread-woven flannel
  • fleece

what is on the back of your quilt?
jmn111 answered:
Nothing special - I used a piece of white polar fleece I had on hand - I didn't use quilt batting, just juxtaposed the fleece and the flannel top, quilted it in the hoop and added the binding.
