Flannel Finish

Here’s the WIP I was supposed to be working on when I got hopelessly distracted by all those lovely pincushions.  Well, I finally finished it…clipping and all and got it delivered earlier in the week.  YES!

The colors are definitely not me and who wants to work with flannel when it’s 7000 degrees outside?! I got some really funny looks at the quilt shop.  But it was for a good cause and the recipient is very happy. YAY!

I like rag quilts as they are very quick and extremely forgiving.  DH asked where the pattern came from…I told him from the steel sieve of my mind.  He didn’t get it.  Sigh.

Happy quilting, y’all!

I’ve linked to Richard Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Amy Lou Who.



  1. Wish I had someone to do the clipping — it's the reason I no longer make the rag quilts, even tho they really are fun to make, and wonderful to use 🙂 Congratulations on your finish!

  2. Stopping by from Amylouwho. Flannel quilts will be nice to use in the winter — but definitely not fun with this heat wave! Great job with your finish.

  3. Someone is going to be very lucky to have that quilt to snuggle under! I back all of my quilts with flannel–I love how soft it is (which is also why I keep my flannel sheets on my bed all year long–but I'm from MN and not TX!). I remember sewing the binding on a rather large and heavy quilt, which of course had flannel on the back, on a end of summer trip to Kansas last year–that was HOT! The things we do to get our projects done though 🙂 Thanks for sharing! Rag quilts are the best!
