    Those are beautiful, so cozy looking. I'm going to work on my flannel stash. Your family is a lucky bunch to have you. :)

    Oh my Goodness, I love the Carpenter's Star!!!!!! Oh, wow. Where did you find a pattern that big? I did a 24" block, but not in flannel, but what a wonderful idea. I'm in love with your quilt.

    Beautiful!!! They look so cozy.
    Was the flannel hard to sew?
    I would love to try one.

    I hand piece and it is easy to sew flannel by hand and fast as well. Can't say about machine sewing as I haven't tried it.

    The carpenters star ended up being 85" square. I kept adding so it would cover my husband when he was stretched out on the couch. It turned out so much better than I thought it would.

    I love working with flannel. It is so comforting. I got some a few years ago at my lqs and it gets softer with each washing and does not wear out. There is just something about snuggeling under a flannel quilt when it is cold.

    They're all beautiful, and you've found such lovely pieces of flannel. Did you use a batting, or just flannel front and back?

    I have made 3 quilts from this pattern book. If you look on the web the queen size sells for $560. I gave a class to beginners and they all were able to complete this with little or no trouble but it looks so hard.
