    My son's girl has been with him for over two years. I've made her two wall hangings, but it's time for a ragged flannel. She picked these fabrics from my stash--her favorite color is orange.

    This one is her favorite of the bunch:

    I went to the Mennonite store with the wall of flannels and there wasn't ONE there!!! :shock: :shock: I purchased all the above from there. So, I'll be searching for them on the web. Or, Jenny and I can find something else.

    So, to not waste the trip, I needed to find something.
    I found these:

    Many batiks and more of the tree fabric.

    On I drove to the other Mennonite shop. They didn't have any flannels I wanted either. BUT, they had these:

    The batik with the suns is a great one for the Lake quilts/wall hangings.

    And these:

    The green is a Thimbleberries flannel I use a lot. The other isn't red, it's a rich maroon and the selvage reads "Rocky Mountain Quilts." It was buy one yard, get one free.

    All toll, it was less than $6 a yard. I feel happy, oh so happy.
    :D :wink:
