I purchased some flannel fabric at a garage sale in Las Vegas. From this one purchase, I made four quilts! First was this one, then these three.
Most of the flannel was already cut into strips and squares, so I just had to get creative on how to lay them out.
For this one, I laid pink, yellow, and green rectangles into a "rail fence" design to create a chevron pattern. I finished the quilt top on January 6, 2014.
I purchased additional matching flannel from Jo-Ann's in Springfield, Missouri for the back and binding for all three quilts. I quilted this one using a walking foot on my Bernina 930 Record by stitching 1/4" on either side of the chevron seam lines. I finished the quilt on December 17, 2015.
I gifted the quilt to my friend, Stacey, at her baby shower for her baby girl that is due in February 2016.
For the second quilt, I used navy and green squares and rectangles. I finished the quilt top on January 6, 2014.
After pin basting, I quilted it using a walking foot and stitching 1/4" on either side of all the seam lines. This is my current favorite style of quilting! I finished the quilt on December 17, 2015.
I gifted this quilt to my friend, Laura, as a baby gift for her second son that was born in December 2015.
The third quilt used up just a few scraps that I had left. I arranged the navy and green rectangles into an interesting design, then used some of the extra flannel I had purchased for backing to create negative space on either side. I finished the top on January 7, 2014.
I quilted it with vertical straight lines that increase in distance apart as they move away from the rectangle pieced section. I finished the quilt on December 18, 2015.
I haven't gifted this quilt yet. It's nice to have one ready to go for when I may need a baby gift!
I loved creating so many quilts from another person's scraps!
