So today I bought flannel for 8 lap size quilts for 8 grandchildren - from Joann Fabrics. At $1.99 per yard, I could not resist. I know the quality is not the best, (and really varies between fabrics) but I could not resist the price. I plan to
-Serge the cut edges before I wash the fabric
-Starch the fabric before I cut it out
Any other hints?
4 quilts will be the disappearing nine patch, the other 4 will be Warm Wishes.
I don't expect these to be heirloom quilts. Just quilts to cuddle with while watching TV or reading a book. Grandkids range in age from 6 months to 6.5 years.
These will be Christmas gifts, so I have some time to get them done.
I hope I didn't make a mistake buying this fabric!!
