Getting Ready for Winter

by Nicole

When visions of a bed quilt of Anna Maria Horner flannel started dancing in my head, I pushed through and finished an extra 38 blocks to go from a throw-sized quilt to one large enough for my queen bed. For more on the making of these magic number blocks, check out my previous post here.

I’m so glad that I made the extra blocks. I love the warm colors of these fabrics. The pinks, reds, and oranges are my favorites. Plus, can I just say that AMH flannel is no ordinary flannel?!? This flannel is so soft and thick. It is unlike any I have ever felt.

Now to piece 110 blocks into a quilt top. This could take me a while.

But, I’m planning for this quilt to be on my bed before the first cold wind of the season blows through North Carolina. Wish me luck!

Gosh, this magic number thing has me intrigued, making mental note to look further into it. (Dropping by from WIP Wednesday). Xx

Beautiful blocks. Beautiful fabrics. I can hardly wait to see this finished! I will be signing up for your blog.

Lovely colors for a winter quilt – it will be fabulous to have it done when it gets cold. I'm taking a cue from Charlotte: turn off the computer and commence to sewing!

Oohh…. that is some lovely, lovely flannel! It seems like all the flannel I see around my LQSs is kiddie or Christmas prints. That's going to be one snuggly quilt… though I'm not so sure about the cold winter winds that blow through your (according to Wikipedia) subtropical highland climate. Mightn't you be a little too warm? You should send that lovely northward! ๐Ÿ™‚
