    Turning Twenty Flannel Quilt

    This is a close up pic of the quilt top that I started yesterday and finished tonight. The pattern is Turning Twenty and is made from Buggy Barn's Essential Flannels which is very soft flannel. I plan to quilt it over Thanksgiving weekend. The quilt will be 1 of 10 that my sisters and I are making for our family "you could be the lucky one to win this quilt drawing" during our Christmas Eve get together. We have 84 people in our immediate family so it gets quite "loud" as everyone is excited to see who wins!

    I do not prewash any of my fabrics. When I use flannel, I still piece the blocks using 1/4" seams. This Turning Twenty is 100 x 100 with the 2 extra borders I put on, so I use 1" seams when I pieced the backing. I always wash my quilts after I have them quilted and the binding on. I tell my family/friends that I will always be willing to make quilts for them BUT only if they use them and NOT "save them"!! I have never had any fall apart yet and they have been washed/dried many times over. I will note that I only use LQS flannel so IMHO, this is the reason for very minimal shrinking and no bleeding when the quilt is washed/dried.
