Flannel Baby Squares

I bought a flannel layer cake called Animal ABC Flannel when we were at Missouri Star Quilt Company in May, 2017. I used the layer cake and other fabrics in a baby quilt in June, 2017. Of course, I had pieces left. Recently I decided to use the rest of the layer cake in a donation baby quilt. 

There were already a few pieces cut so I cut the rest of the layer cake 10" squares into 5" squares. When I realized the layer cake was not a true 10" square, I resized the pieces to be 4.75" squares.

The quilt is small, just 43" square but cuddly. 

I used a piece of teal cotton from my stash for the binding and the back incorporating the last of the pieces from the layer cake. I used a walking foot to cross hatch the quilt with white Aurifil thread. 

 It's nice to have another finish for the donation pile.

Most of our time is spent making face masks. 

We ran out of interfacing again last night. Hopefully a new supply will arrive this coming week. In the meantime, we will enjoy our time doing other things.

Although life seems to change each day, I feel blessed that Ray and I are weathering this together. Tomorrow we'll celebrate Easter. It won't be the same but when we were first married,we celebrated holidays alone and we did survive. We found that anticipating the day was so much worse that the actual holiday. Our church service will be online complete with music. Happy Easter.


  1. I don't like precuts because they are seldom cut properly (at least the ones I've purchased). Happy Easter! I'm dressed up, and will be having Sunday School online (group chat) then watch the Easter Service on YouTube. We got to watch our granddaughter hunt eggs yesterday (her first time) on the Marco Polo app. Even if we weren't in lock down, we still couldn't have been there, since she is so far away. Thank goodness for technology.

  2. Nice job on a BIG batch of masks and that completed quilt, too!! Enjoy your quiet Easter.
