I finished up my Folksy Flannels Plus Quilt today! I purchased a half-yard set of the line for myself for Christmas last year. I had gotten a few scraps of it and could not believe how soft it was! It took me a while to decide on a design, finally going with another plus quilt, using my Plus Quilt Tutorial! This is now my largest quilt, at 72"x92".

I ended up using 7.5" squares, 10 columns, 13 rows. I had a lot of fun with this quilt, the flannel was easy to work with, thanks to my walking foot! The front came together pretty quickly once I got into a rhythm!

I pieced the back with leftover squares and some yardage of one of my favorite prints.

After quilting all those quilts in April, the last thing I wanted to do when I finished this quilt top was to quilt it! It's a big quilt and it's two layers of flannel so it's really heavy! I was very happy when my dear friend Christina agreed to quilt it! I love her work and she quilted my very first quilt! As soon as it was decided it was like a weight was lifted! I had been stressing about quilting this puppy! I knew that I wanted something pretty loose, with just enough density to keep the quilt together! Christina did a fantastic job, it's exactly what I imagined! I love how the quilting lines just sink into the fluffy flannel!

I knew I didn't want to bind this quilt in more flannel (can you imagine that many layers?!), so I ended up going with Pastry Line voile in Lilac by Anna Maria Horner after seeing Cara's quilt!

I cannot WAIT to use this quilt, it's so heavy and I'm sure will be really handy during the long, cold Wisconsin winters! :)

  14. It's so beautiful. Even though the high today is 97 degrees, it still looks cozy, which is really saying something! A plus quilt is going to be my next new project (hopefully before the end of the year!).

  18. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! I'm planning a cross/plus quilt out of AMH's Little Folks and can't wait to start it but I have a few crafting fires to put out first. I'm going to look into your tutorial because I have exactly 20 FQ's to work with. :) Thanks!

  21. Jeni,
    I know this post is from awhile ago, but I have a question. Did you use batting since you have 2 layers of flannel?

    Thanks! Ashley
