    Hi! I am new to the boards and new to quilting. This is my first project. It is a weighted blanket for my daughter with autism. It is filled with poly pellets.

    Looking good - were the pellets hard to work with?

    Beautiful. They make me want to cuddle up under them. I am making my first flannel quilts and I love the feel of the fabric. Great job.

    Not really. But I had no earlier experience. I just cut rectangles, sewed them closed almost to the end but left a big enough whole to get a funnel into. Filled about 1/3 with pellets then sewed the rest of the way up. I was finding pellets all over the place though. Still find one once in a while. :)

    Welcome from NE CA. Glad you joined us. You must have known we love pictures. I've never heard of using pellets, why the pellets? Does the weight calm your daughter down?

    Very nice! Doesn't look like you're a beginner :)

    The weighted pellets is an interesting concept, I never heard of that before. I love to have weight on me when I sleep.

    Welcome :)

    Welcome from NY!! :D

    Those are wonderful projects! I love the hearts in the ragged flannel. I just heard about weighted blankets... what a neat idea.

    How old are your kids?

    I love both of your quilts. I've never seen one done with the pellets. What a cool idea-that may be my next project!! Thanks for the ideas. For your first quilts you did a very great and wonderful job :D

    Hi! welcome from Lynchburg, VA

    I'm not familiar with pellets--are they washable? non-toxic?

    wow! triplets. I have my hands full with just 1 child.
