    Flannel Drunkard's Path

    Just finished my first flannel quilt! This was the first time for sewing curves, using leftover blocks for a pieced back, and using flannel front and back. Made up the pattern as I went. Had bought a layer cake of Wool and Needle II flannel to make the blocks and picked up some extra yardage to make the piano key border. Used Pellon Legacy 100% cotton for batting and FMQ'd in each block and doodled in the piano border. FMQ was a little tougher than I thought it would be since the whole thing was kind of heavy and didn't slide around real easy. Used Elmer's glue to baste the layers. Used a topstitch 14 needle per suggestion of the QB and that seemed to take care of some of the thread breakage I had when using a regular 14 needle.

    I did not wash and dry any of the material before I started so was a little apprehensive but I put it in the washer with cold water, let it sit for an hour, spun dry and tossed it in the dryer. Of course, I said a big prayer! Only shrunk 1 inch on all 4 sides so I was thrilled that it turned out so well!

    Schools are closed again in Minnesota today due to extreme cold and windchills and I don't work until Wednesday so finishing this quit was timely! Bring it on, Mother Nature--I'm ready for ya!

    Your quilt is beautiful and being flannel had to be warm and cozy! You did a great job!

    Beautiful and you did a great job on it. Maybe quilting it before washing kept it from shrinking more than it did?
    I haven't made a flannel quilt for lots of years. Sometime in the 70s when our three kids were young.

    You did a nice job on your quilt. It looks very inviting -- we are having below zero weather so it would be fought over at my house right now!

    I really like the way it turned out. I have the same fabric in 5 in. squares. They really go together nicely. Thanks for showing your quilt.

    That's my idea of a perfect quilt - I love everything about it - colors, design, quilting ...!

    This is really beautiful. I would not have dared use flannel for my first curves - sounds hard!
