Simple Flannel Quilt

When I moved into my new sewing room, I of course found many things. Many things like projects that I started but put away. Put away because I wasn't in the mood to finish them, or I got bored on working on them, or something newer/better came along, or life interupted them.

Anyway, this is one of those projects. This is a Thimbleberries pattern that was so simple, I knew it would be perfect done in flannels. I bought this several years ago, the line is by Maywood Studios "Christmas Presence". I really liked the colors, and I didn't think it looked so Christmasy, that it couldn't be used all year round.

I have to confess that this part is the least part of quilting that I like to do. Maybe that's why it got put away so long ago? I have to say that sandwiching and pinning it today was so much easier doing it on my nice big cutting table. I used to have to do it on our king-sized bed, but there were always folds and wrinkles in the fabric because the surface was not hard.
