a tiny quilt in folksy flannel

I don’t use a lot of flannel, but I just couldn’t resist the super soft Anna Maria Horner Folksy Flannels. So, so soft, and with such cute prints!

I only had a small amount of a couple of the prints, so I decided to make a really simple tiny little quilt (what else would I make, really?!) I haven’t ever quilted with flannel, so it was more of an experiment than anything else…

On the front I used this adorable print with the little houses, along with a strip of the yellow print which is also used on the backing.

It’s quilted simply, with little loops. It’s really not very visible, but cute, if you look close. The binding is a berry colored solid.

It measures about 22″ x 24″… tiny, but would probably make a great soft security blanket for a little one, or maybe a nice doll quilt, or perhaps even a little changing mat (it’s soft and cushy, and washable!). For sale here. (and since it was made as a test, it’s priced accordingly!) Sold, thanks Darcy!

    I love it! I just got some of the flannel in the first photo you show and I am in love with it. I also got some Amy Butler Love Dots flannel but it’s nowhere near as soft or nice. I definitely need more Little Folks!

    Very nice! I like the stripe that runs through it to match the other side!

    I can actually feel the softness from all the way here (Malaysia). The fabric looks great.

    I’ve had my eye on that flannel for a bit. Some lounge pants are in my future.

    Old post — but I have a stack of these flannels and am wanting to make a warm & cozy lap quilt for the couch. Do you think a full size lap quilt with a flannel pieced front and full flannel back would be too *flannelly*?

    I’m just learning about flannel. Friends have given me some flannel and I’ve purchased a yard or two at Joanne’s. The Cuddle Fleece they carry pilled like crazy. Recently, I ordered some Quilters Flannel which is lovely but only comes in 43″ or something like that. There’s a whole world of second rate flannel out there especially in the very tempting prints can you give advise or brand names of good quality flannel? Thanks
