Christmas Flannel Quilt

Here is a quilt that should have been done about 7 years ago.
The reason for not completing it back then?
The quilt pattern had two different blocks to make a beautiful large quilt.
I sewed up both sets of blocks and they cam out two different sizes.   : (

I was so frustrated, I just put it away.  This year I promised myself that I would work on my unfinished quilts.  The first one I posted a while ago, HERE

I took one set of the blocks and laid them out and this is the pattern I got and a smaller quilt, lap size.

This is a flannel quilt.
It was the first time making a quilt using flannel and it was a bit more delicate to work with.
The fabric unraveled more and the it had a lot more stretch to it than cotton fabric.
I needed to be more careful with the blocks when ironing the seams, no seam either.

The block size is 6-1/2

This one will be going to Hubby and I have another set of blocks to work with.

I will try to work on that soon but now I need to get to my next sewing project, curtains for my laundry room.

Thank you for your nice comments on my boy Opie.
Yes, he is a sweetie.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Hello Bobbie Lynn,

This quilt is stunning, love the colours of the fabric. Well done on getting it all together, especially as it was a difficult fabric to sew with. Good luck with the curtains.

Happy days.

Bobbie Lynn the quilt is lovely you did a great job and I know first hand using flannel can be a challenge, the ends fray fast and you have all those little threads everywhere but your end result is simply stunning. The colors are some warm and cozy looking I imagine your quilt will wrap you in warmth all winter.
