Folksy Flannel Quilt

Deciding what to make for my little sister for Christmas was easy– she loves the Folksy Flannel prints, and I was in luck because I had just stocked up on them! I thought she could use another quilt (the first one I made her is lightweight, cotton quilt), and I wanted this one to be warmer, so I backed it in grey flannel.

I decided to do a new-to-me free motion quilting design on this one. I felt the overall design was simple, so a little more detail in the quilting dresses it up a bit. Because of the bright, bold prints on the front the quilting pattern mostly blends in. On the back, however, it shows up clearly.

Although I did not follow Anna Maria Horner’s pattern (I put the quilt top together before she released her log mansion pattern) if you’re looking to make a similar quilt, she has a free PDF available here. It was this photo that inspired my quilt:

I love this line so much– I had trouble not buying even more than I did, but one of my friends pointed out that a whole milk crate of this fabric is probably enough! I know this might be considered “fabric enabling,” but I should note– this line is now out of print, and is getting a little hard to find. However, my friend Brenda has the full fat quarter set in her shop! So, if you’re thinking of getting some before it’s gone, check it out.
