In my last post, I shared the flannel quilt I made for Denis to use in our chilly lower level. Well, once I made his, I realized that I needed a nice warm flannel quilt too! Now we have "His & Hers" flannel quilts. Both are made from the same pattern, but are quite different in presentation.
I chose to make my quilt a bit more feminine, of course. While making the rounds of the quilt shops in Wausau several years ago, I found a line of flannel by Maywood Studios (aptly names Tulips) that captured my soul (you all know that feeling!) I just absolutely had to have it. The inspiration fabric for my quilt is the larger tulip print in the outer border. This print is also the flannel I used for the back. A smaller tulip print in the same fabric line was used for the center blocks. A pink heather print was used for the sashing and binding and is from Maywood's Woolies line. A green and cream dot was used for the inner and outer cornerstones (also by Maywood).
As in Denis' lap quilt, I again used the pattern "Flannel Flinders Too" by Pine Tree Lodge Designs. I used a solid outer border of my inspiration fabric, and a traditional one fabric binding. Quilting was kept to a simple cross-hatch pattern through the center blocks, and a straight line all the way around through the outer border. I also stitched a tulip motive in the outer border cornerstones.
I'm happy to report that my quilt keeps me very warm, indeed!
