Wow – it’s been awhile since I posted – somehow life gets in the way. Isn’t that great? 🙂
I’ve been working on several projects, so let’s catch up.
This is a queen size quilt that’s made of flannel squares. That may not sound too amazing, but this is something I pulled from my UFO’s (Un Finished Objects). When I pulled it out of the box, it was pieced and layered with a piece of white flannel as the batting and a red/black plaid flannel as the backing. Three layers of flannel – thin but very warm! So when did I piece it and layer it? One of the mysteries of the world. Ah, but there was a catch, it didn’t line up correctly. The batting and backing weren’t quite the same size as the top. So, do I un-layer it and line it up correctly and add in pieces to make the backing the same size as the top? No way! Cut off 3″ from each side and quilt it! The thing about UFO’s – get them done and move on. So I put it on the quilt frame and quilted a beautiful swirl design in gold thread. That really added movement to the squares of flannel. This is currently on our bed and let me tell you – that sucker is heavier and warmer than it looks! And my husband loves it!
For those of you keeping track, this is week 22 of my 52 week challenge. And just to think about it, I may start that 52 week challenge again next year – but better prepared!
