    A few months back I asked for help regarding finding kelly green flannel. I also wondered if one could mix types of fabrics when making a quilt. I had previously either made quilts all out of
    flannel or all out of quilters cotton fabric. I received a lot of great answers from many of you. Thanks to everyone who responded. I decided to use blocks of fleece, chenille, and soft raised dotted fleece. I used natural cotton batting and backed the quilt with fleece. I am attaching 2 pictures. My 12 year old granddaughter was very pleased with her new quilt!

    Thanks so much. I appreciate your comment. I was a little apprehensive about mixing fabrics, but the more I worked with it, the more fun I had making it and I liked the mixture of textures.

    Thanks, Jackie. It feels so good that others (besides my granddaughter) appreciate my efforts. Sometimes I feel badly that I don't do handmade quilts, I only do machine quilting. But, it's what I am able to do. :)

    Thanks, Gayle, and thank your children for their service to our country. They are very much appreciated by me and so many other Americans. The picture of your quilt looks very intricate and beautiful. :)

    Thanks, Lisa. Since I was only using two colors (my granddaughter's school colors), I needed something to make it interesting. :)
