A while back, I made a flannel quilt top for my husband.
I had been promising him a blanket (quilt, crochet or knit) for so long, and this year I finally did it.
I used Maywood Studio’s Woolies Flannel Neutral 2.5″ strips, which I purchased from Missouri Star Quilt Co.
The pattern is a simple Jelly Roll Race Quilt top.
I sent this to MSQ Co. to have it quilted and it arrived back in time for Christmas (with a nice note from the person who quilted it-love this company!).
So far, my son has used it the most.
Unfortunately, he was hit with a stomach bug after Christmas.
His sleeping schedule was knocked for a loop and I would find him at 4am on the couch covered up with the quilt.
(He is also my greatest fan-loves to wrap himself up in my handmade items)
The quilt is warm and cozy.
Happily, he is on the mend.
Happy New Year!
UPDATE: Well, my son is sick and unfortunately threw up on the quilt.
So, I had to wash it.
I am disappointed to report that the fabric basically disintegrated on the quilt top.
So, so, so many seams are gone and I have holes everywhere.
If it were just one or two I would blame it on my myself and technique, but they are everywhere…so, I do not recommend this fabric/jelly roll.
For a quilt that is literally one week old, it looks like its been in the family for 100 years.
