I finished quilt number 2 for BFF's granddaughters.  This one began as a Raggedy Ann panel, and a yard each of two coordinating prints that were in my stash.  DH is happy to see the pile of flannel that I had purchased for kids' quilts slowly shrinking.  I try to use flannel on the back for kids, as it is more cuddly.  I am a fabric pre-washer, and the flannel is washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer to pre-shrink it before adding it to a project.
Now I am trying to decide whether to start a new project, or begin making my own "quilt kits" to take south.  We'll be heading that way in just over a month, and with Thanksgiving, family visits, Christmas shopping etc., I know the time will fly as it always does. 
 I had fun quilting stars and hearts in the large dark pink border, then a large stipple in the final border.  This was one of my more favourite panels - perfect for a 2 year old!

  1. Very cute. I love flannel for the back of almost any quilt but especially for the kids.
