I finally found a use for flannel. Yeah.
I do say that with a hint of sarcasm. I like flannel, just not in quilts. Then why do I have so much? Good question. Maybe I just can’t pass up a sale. Ohhhh, that is very likely. Don’t get me wrong, I have made a few flannel quilts with scraps. They came out fine. I just feel that by the time I am done, the fuzz on flannel looks dirty. I know, weird. But I do like these cute receiving blankets made with flannel. Super simple and cute. I would like to make them a bit larger, which I will work on for the next one.
This past Saturday our guild had a quilt in. Name tags with your name or your code name. Hah! Well, I could not help myself. The sew-in was fun. They had someone teaching free motion quilting, or you could just work on whatever you wanted to. I took my $11.99 Bernina and sewed up a storm. It was a rainy Saturday in Ohio, so it was perfect for sewing and I won a door prize. $25.00 gift certificate to a local quilt shop. WooHoo!
