    This is a flannel quilt I put together for my DS. He is not quite 2 yet but I think he will appreciate it eventually. It was my first quilt, first time working with flannel and first time tying a quilt. It's very snuggly!

    Looks great..I'm sure he'll love it. In fact, you'll probably have trouble getting it away from him to wash it occasionally. :D

    He'll love to snuggle in it.
    It's so soft!

    I'm leaning towards flannel for the backing on all the grandkids quilts-I did one and I'm hooked. I even enjoyed handstitching the binding while snuggling with the quilt. I just wish there were a better selection of reasonably priced flannel. I can't imagine how cuddly making a total flannel quilt would be. My next boy quilt has squares of cotton and flannel, but I am having a hard time finding plaid flannel for the back.

    Not sure where you are at Susie, but here we have an outlet store called Mill End Textiles. They have a huge selection of cottons and flannels, not to mention every other type of fabric, they're cheap and they give you coupons besides. I think the most expensive quilting fabric they carry is like 6/yd! Add a 60% off coupon to that and it makes quilting really affordable! Maybe you can google and see if there is something similar in your area?

    Thanks MN, I'm in W Massachusetts and will google a little more. Hopefully I will find the flannel that I am looking for-it is always frustrating to find what you want at an affordable price and shipping rates are hefty.

    Has anyone ordered from jandofabrics.com, New Jersey company?

    It might be a while before your son "appreciates" the effort it took to make him this quilt, but I bet he loves it on sight! Good job!

    He will take to this little quilt and it will be hard to get it from him to wash you'll have to catch him a sleep them steal it away long enough to wash and have it back by him before he wake's up really pretty quilt.
    I love the feel of flannel.

    That sure is cute. I made three baby quilts with flannel and I love the way they feel. So soft and cuddly.
