    Flannel sheets into a lap quilt

    My sister asked me to put a new back on a quilt that her husbands grandmother had made years ago... she bought a set of king size flannel sheets to use. I used the flat sheet for the repair, but then I still had a lot of fabric left from the fitted sheet. So I thought, I think I need a lap quilt for my couch I bought a twin size set from the same collection to get the right color match - - but I did break down and buy some black flannel yardage to go with it. I wanted a scrappy look so the blocks are a little "misplaced" looking. This is a very cuddly quilt! With the sheets that I have left I will be making a sister quilt. Thanks for looking!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wonderful quilt. It looks like it is just waiting for someone to snuggle up in it

    Love it! Where did you find the red plaid sheets? Would be great for a lap quilt I'm working on.

    Thanks everyone!

    The sheets were bought from Amazon... their pricing really fluctuates. My sis bought the California king set in the red plaid for $21 and today they show for $47

    I really like your touch of black flannel added to the blocks. Red and Black are my son's college colors. The D4patch block looks perfect with the plaids and solids. I would love to make my son a quilt like this one. What size block did you chose?

    Can you please ask your sister where she purchased the king size flannel sheet set? I was hoping if it has been recently, that I may be able to find one like it. Thanks bunches for posting your quilt. It does look so soft and warm!

    copycat - - I started with 8" squares... sewed 4 of them into a 4 patch and then made the DP4 from that. The sheets were purchased from Amazon
