Flannel Quilt


Finished quilt!


This quilt is made of shirt flannel . . .
very warm and cozy:) 


I counldn't show it before, because
it was a Christmas present
and I didn't want to take the chance 
of it being seen before Christmas.




The back.


I made one other Christmas quilt . . .
and in my hurry to get it in the mail
in time . . .
I forgot to take a photo, LOL.
I lost a good post opportunity:)
 

Here's wishing you all a lovely day . . .

If you have cold weather,
Please stay warm . . .
 &
Keep That Pretty Smile
On Your Face.

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

  4. Old shirts make the best quilts, Connie - love yours.
    Keep warm - it's very COLD here - we're not used to it so we're being wimps.

    1. The older we get the less we like cold weather, too, but we do like living in an area with four seasons:)

  5. How cozy that lovely quilt must be. I'm sure the lucky recipient will find lots of times to cuddle up in it.
    Too bad you didn't get a pic of the other quilt. Stay warm!!

    1. I'm visiting them this spring, so I'll try and take a couple of pictures of it then. We have had so much company that I was rushing to just get it done and in the mail in time for Christmas.

  8. Connie, we will all be wanting a nice flannel quilt these next few days. It's bitter cold here...but we are blessed compared to so many getting tons of snow. Stay warm and safe there. You do very good work on your quilts. The little sign at the bottom makes it more sweet. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

    1. Hi Susie, thank you . . . we are having very cold weather too, but so far not much snow. I wouldn't mind it at all if we didn't see anymore snow at all this winter:)

  12. Hi Connie, I am sorry that Steve is laid up with his foot but I think that quilt will make him feel better! I finished my flanel lap top quilt but so far have not given it to anyone! I don't like making flannel quilts but they sure are nice and warm! I hope you are doing well. Nancy

    1. I enjoyed making this quilt and have decided to make one for myself . . . these can be your quilts we pull out each winter when the weather is cold. We like keeping our home a little bit cooler that most people (63/65) so at night when we watch TV we always have a warm quilt handy:)

  19. What a perfect time for a big warm flannel quilt!! It's freezing here...unusually cold for us. I love flannel! The first quilt I ever made (I'm not a good quilt maker) was made from old flannel shirts and robes, with a few patches of denim. We still use it. Hope Steve's foot gets well real soon. Happy New Year to you both!!

    1. Hi Nancy, every quilt that i've made has been my own design . . . I'm better at creating than I am at following directions, LOL. I think it's more fun that way, too.

    1. It's cold here too . . . but then January and February are usually our coldest months. Compared to last winter we are having a heat wave, LOL. Last year was the worst I'd ever seen in our area and I've lived here for 44 years :)
