|some blocks on design wall|
This is my first all-flannel quilt, and after I started cutting, I checked for online advice on sewing with flannel. From watching friends make flannel quilts, I remembered that simple and large scale blocks work best (for beginners). The online hints I saw most often were to "prewash" and "stitch seams wider than 1/4". It was too late for me to follow that advice, as most of the parts were already cut, and my yardage of lights and burgundy is limited.

The top is going together quickly. That's to be expected with 8" finished HST in "Block A" and 4-1/2" wide strips and squares in "Block B." Fast and simple, and it should be cuddly warm. If this is done and quilted in time, it'll be another giveaway to my coworkers in a drawing early December.
