Flannel baby quilt is finished and more ...

This donation quilt is flannel on both the front and back; it's very cuddly. It is about 53" square and has Dream Cotton batting.

I used yellow Aurifil thread to piece and quilt this. I used my walking foot to quilt a diamond grid design. The back is yellow with a small white dot.

I am participating in the Free Motion Quilting Challenge with Angela Walters. This is a picture of my quilt for the challenge while I was piecing the top. It's the suggested pattern and goes together pretty fast. We will actually begin quilting next week. The quilt is about 53" by 58" and it is now sandwiched and ready to go!

I have one of the two baby quilts that I can't show you pieced. I took a break to kit a couple of projects for an upcoming retreat. While I was cleaning the sewing rooms the other day, I realized that I had way too many strips of fabric. I thought there was just this basket, but I found there was also a drawer full. After pulling out enough for two quilts, I still have this

and this.

This was my beginning pile for a rail fence quilt. As I sorted more, I did 'reject' a few of these.

I also pulled out batik strips, I think 45 or 46, for a jelly roll race quilt. And I still have so many more...


  1. What a sweet little quilt! A perfect quilt to cuddle with! Have fun with your new quiltalong!

  2. Good luck in the class. I may have to make more baby quilts soon. The baby only has a couple, and, both of mine may hang on the wall, instead of just one.
