Brights Gone Bold



This flannel quilt gave me my first challenge in color, and I think the quilt, rather than I won. I am not entirely satisfied with the domineering orange but after sewing blocks with various orange, pink, and green fabrics, this was the most pleasing. I may show you those other blocks someday.


The quilt was very easy to make. The majority of the quilting is a generic in the ditch. For non-quilters, quilting in the ditch is sewing in the seam (from the front) where the two different fabrics join. Along with the ditch quilting, I also did some meandering in the yellow flowered background fabric. It was a fun quilt to make. The green flannel binding ties it all together.


As it’s made entirely with flannel (except batting), it would be a perfect girl’s snuggle quilt. The pink and orange blocks are approximately 12 inches square, and with sashing and border, the quilt measures 46 inches square.
