flannel quilts and a finish from Making A Lather

My ufo # 2 and #3 for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy was 2 pink flannel baby quilts. I didn't know, when I opened the box, if I had just collected the fabric, or, had it cut for what I needed. I saw labels on the fabric, so I was excited to learn it was already cut and ready to sew.

there are 2 quilts cut out in the box


I had all the letters I needed for the pattern -quilt #1

I arranged them on tray with all the letters showing

I have looked all over the ...

Study In Softness: Marybeth's Flannel-Backed Baby Quilt from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I just finished quilting this sweet and snuggly-soft baby quilt for my friend Marybeth.  Her #1 priority was keeping the quilting light enough so the quilt would be as soft as possible for tucking around a little one in a stroller.  Isn't it sweet?

Marybeth's Snuggly-Soft Baby Quilt

We chose the pantograph Gingersnap from Urban Elementz and I adjusted the pattern density in my IntelliQuilter to where the scale of the double circles complemented the scale of Marybeth's pieced squares and HSTs.  The thread is Glide in a pale blue color called Cloud.  

Gingersnap Pantograph from Urban ...

baby flannel from Making A Lather

I had a jelly roll of flannel, that, I have moved from place to place, until, I was tired of it. I decided I would just use the treadle at night to do a baby quilt with it. It wasn't supposed to be an official project. I was just sewing the strips together. But, it was across the couch for awhile, until, I was tired of it. The only way I could put it away, was to get it ready for quilting. geesh


It wasn't very big, so it just had to have borders. These are not the ...

All the Stockings Were Hung... from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Both Teri and I (Kara) have been working on all things stocking lately. Our Cardinals Christmas Stocking was released earlier in the week, and now we would like to introduce our Floral Christmas Stocking!

This flannel and wool stocking is simple in its color scheme but is full of little details that give it a unique charm. All the simple embroidery is done with Weeks DyeWorks crewel wool, giving the stocking a lot of texture. We have a limited number of kits available that include the flannel, wool, ribbon hanger, and a whole skein of the Weeks crewel wool. All ...

September OMG done from Quilting & Learning

Hi! I'm cutting it pretty close but they are done - my niece's curtains for her cottage bedroom. These are my September One Monthly Goal (OMG). 

Tab top curtains in buffalo red & black plaid flannel

This was the first time that I made tab top curtains. In my curtain making days, we made a sleeve to pull it though. These curtains weren't very difficult but I'm really glad that I didn't have to buy a pattern. YouTube can be pretty wonderful.

Buffalo red and black plaid flannel curtains

I watched the DIY Tab Top Curtains YouTube ...

Farmhouse Flannels II: Detailed list for Hometime quilt from Carried Away Quilting


After releasing my new pattern, Hometime, I received requests for the details on which fabrics I used for my sample quilt. You know that I used the new Farmhouse Flannels II collection by Primitive Gatherings for Moda, but I didn’t list out each SKU number. Since that fabric collection is now available in stores, I thought I’d share that information with you!


Listed below are the fabric requirements for the top and binding of the Hometimequilt, along with the particular SKUs I used. The Moda swatch page for Farmhouse Flannels II is also helpful!

New pattern: Hometime from Carried Away Quilting


Earlier this spring I shared a graduation quilt I made using the new Farmhouse Flannels II collection by Primitive Gatherings for Moda. The colors in this collection are warm, earthy and masculine, and the prints include an assortment of traditional plaid, stripe and houndstooth. It’s the perfect collection for a striking guy quilt! When my son saw the quilt I had made, he piped up and said he needed a new quilt too . . . and out of the same fabric! That is music to a quilting mom’s ears, isn’t it? I was so inspired by Luke’s request ...

Scrappy Sewing {Flannel Burp Cloths} from Little Bunny Quilts

As I mentioned in some of my recent posts, one of my sewing goals for The Great Stay Home Marathon is reorganizing my sewing room. I use flannel for backing baby quilts, but I often end up with flannel scraps that I don't know what to do with a lot of the time. However, there is another impending baby boom in my circle of friends (four babies between June and November!) I decided to pull out the flannel scraps and make some really simple burp cloths.

There are a lot of different burp cloth tutorials out there and I ...

From creative family and friends from Sew Sunshine


My lovely niece Lisa made this fabulous scene. The tall white tree was cut with her Cricut machine. So were the framed picture and the tiny bits that make up those cool balls. These are all so wonderful. Like a wonderland!  I like to think I am creative with my quilting but this was all another level that i just had to share. 

Also recently my last post was on the test quilt "Eternal Moment' That I did for Simone Quilts. Read about it HERE 
Her pattern is in the last issue of Make Modern Magazine. I thought I would ...

Baby Girl Quilt for Olivia from Studio Dragonfly Quilts



This commission quilt was made for a coworker and friend who is expecting her first grandchild. One of the requirements was that it not have too much pink as the mom is not fond of all pink for her baby girl. However, purple was most definitely acceptable and I was fortunate to find this cozy cotton flannel fat quarter bundle by Studio RK for Robert Kaufman. Another request was to personalize the quilt with the baby's full name. I "purpled out" the last name for security reasons. 


Typically, I print a label onto fabric using my inkjet printer but ...

Holiday themed rag quilt with Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


I’ve lost count of how many quilts I’ve made over the years, which is probably a good thing. (I might be embarrassed to know the total number.) But in all my years of sewing and quilting, I had never made a rag quilt . . . until recently that is! Armed with a great pattern and some charming holiday themed flannels, my home is ready for Christmas visitors thanks to this new quilt.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, a rag quilt is made by sewing sandwiched blocks (a block top, a piece of batting, and a ...

Flannel Vortex Baby Quilt from The Cozy Quilter

Early this week, I took all of my blocks of various shapes and sizes, and cobbled them into a quilt top.  This was my 4th vortex quilt, inspired by Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom quilts, made in an attempt to tame my flannel scrap bin.  I even used some flannel leftovers to piece the back.  These strips were purchased at the modern guild rummage sale a few weeks ago.


Many of these flannel fabrics are filled with memories--lots of leftovers from PJ's made for my daughter and nieces when they were little---now, all three are in their 20's ...

Crafters' Retreat from The Cozy Quilter

Christine and I spent the weekend at Camp...we each brought numerous projects with us and I am happy to report that progress was made on everything!


My ironing board is almost due for a new cover---ignoring that, you can see I worked on my flannel vortex baby quilt--my third flannel vortex quilt (I have also done one out of cotton quilting scraps).  This quilt involves lots of sewing, pressing, trimming, and then more sewing, pressing and trimming. I went home with some larger chunks, ready to be made into a quilt top.


I started a new Christmas quilt--no pattern ...

Expecting a Baby from TheEclecticAbuela

No, not I!

My son and his wife will be parents in November. What is an Abuela to do in that situation? Make a quilt, of course!

I was going to try to make a calm, sedate baby quilt, but my style choices are usually about as peaceful as a riot. Once I saw the Laurel Burch flannel--I was a goner. No more plans for pale green and grey--I wanted her wild animals.

Missouri Star Shop Feature: Primitive & Wool from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

“Primitive,” also known as “Early Americana” style, emerged from within the first colonies here in the “New World.” Once the colonists were finally settled in, they had a bit more time get creative with everyday necessities such as clothing, furniture, and children’s toys.

While sewing up clothes for their children and fulfilling the duty of “homemaker,” women started to enhance their making skills with decorative stitching and design, steering away from trends in Europe and creating the first American style.

Today, folk artists use modern elements to create an antiquated look. At Missouri Star Quilt Co., we have a ...

MY FINAL FINISH BEFORE OUR TRIP from The Proficient Needle

Last winter, a quilting friend gave me all of her scraps.  There was lots of flannel in various shades and prints, so I began making mini rail fence blocks.  

I pulled the project bag out on the weekend, and decided to finish the quilt.  I have a large collection of small cuts of flannel, saved from the backings of the kids' and baby quilts that I make, so I started cutting strips, and paired them light to dark.  After stitching and pressing the pieces, they were cut into 4 square units, 3.5 inches square, and stitched into blocks.  I ...
