After making the little quilt for Frank's bed I leapt straight into making another for our big bed and had set my heart on some brushed cotton flannel.
It's a fabric I remember well from my childhood and loved the soft warmth of it.
A while ago soulemama mentioned Folksy Flannels by Anna Maria Horner so I got googling and found a source in the UK (in order that postage didn't involve selling a kidney!).
I decided pretty quickly on a blue/yellow mix of colours and got ordering, then cutting and sewing.
Oh my, it was fun and such yummy fabric.
The batting is 100% cotton and the backing fabric a second hand flannel sheet I picked up locally at a charity shop.
Making this secnd quilt and, I confess, a third recently has really demystified the whole process for me. I had spent a long time thinking that quilting was too difficult for me.
Well, no more!
I am officially a quilter.
