Flannel Quilt

When I saw this design, I knew I had to try it. It was an awful lot of work to sew through 5 layers of flannel and it required a lot of turning, but the result was worth it! I just wouldn't want to make a larger one!

The pattern is called "Ruffled Flowers" and is from the Fall 2003 issue of Quilting Ideas from Better Homes and Gardens. It uses bias cut flannel to create the fraying. I did not assemble it according to the directions. You were supposed to quilt each square and then join them with a zigzag stitch. I didn't think this would work effectively on my machine, so I joined all the squares with normal seams, folded down the corners, and then quilted it. It also said to bind it, which didn't seem necessary.

Finished size: 30"x42"
