…look what happens when you find a couple of fabrics at the bottom of your stash….over the course of a week or so, they turn into a lovingly handmade and hand quilted throw blanket

Cosy up in this colourful, cuddly, flannel blanket, perfect for those cool Spring and Summer evenings. This 57 x 37 inch super soft unique quilt is perfect to brighten any corner or space πŸ™‚

…of course, as is ever the case when trying to use up fabrics…I ended up having to buy more (…such a shame LOL Β πŸ˜€ Β ) once I had made my mind up to use the square panels for a cosy cuddly quilt. Luck was definitely shining down on me as I visited the fabric shop!! Fortunately, I managed to source a shadowed cream flannel for the reverse, a ‘flocked’ burgundy red to tie in with the red check in the skew panels and finally a brown and black ‘dogtooth’ flannel for the border and binding. A super soft cotton wadding (as shown here lying under the quilt) and plenty of tiny hand quilted stitches turned those remnants into a stunning ‘Skew Whiffy’ Quilt/ Throw Blanket
