Flannel Quilt

I have finished the top of my flannel quilt. It has turned out larger than I was going to make it but will be great to wrap myself up in on a cold winter's night watching TV.

I didn't have a pattern so I made up my own .

I cut out 6.5" squares of 3 different fabrics. I then cut out 2.5" strips from 6 fabrics. These I used to frame the squares.

I then joined 6 of these blocks together to make a row. I joined the 6 rows together and then added a stripe border. I mitred the border. I was worried about this being difficult to do but it proved very easy. The border looks very effective being mitred.

I am going to make it into a reversible quilt so now have to design the back.

I haven't sewn in flannels before as they can be hard to buy in Qld. I really enjoyed sewing the flannels and will definitely use them again.
