A Friday Flannel Finish!

by Nicole

Allow me to introduce my Anna Maria Horner magic numbers flannel quilt!

She measures 88″ by 96″, making her large enough to cover my bed. She is flannel on the front and back, which means she weighs a ton and will be extra cozy for the colder months.

I quilted her with an allover paisley design. The flannel is so thick that the thread sinks into it, showing nothing but texture.

I found the perfect fabric for the binding – a nice, small scale burgundy print.

I don’t even know how long I’ve been working on this quilt, but it
seems like a while. Having my vision of this quilt become
a reality is satisfying, but I’m sad to see the process of working with
these fabrics come to an end. It’s a good thing I have a few scraps
left over. I may have to stitch up a matching doll quilt for my girls!

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday!

I think everyone has to make at least one flannel quilt. It's so lovely to work with and quilts up beautifully. The flannel quilts I've made are also my husbands favourites because they are the warmest. Your quilt looks great.
