Next quilt.

2 months ago

I think we all try to plan our next quilt as we are finishing the current one.

I have two large bins of strings and strips that need to be taken care of. Someone out there suggested using flannel as the base for string blocks. Lord knows I have tons of flannel leftovers from my chemo quilts. So I haven’t tried one yet but it is in the thinking stage.

A question is, would the quilt need batting if it is then backed in flannel? That would be two layers of flannel plus the cotton top. OR instead of using regular batting, replace it with another layer of flannel. Then we have three flannel layers and one cotton. It would certainly be warm enough.

Or would it be just a bit unwieldy to get those layers to behave?

Are you beginning to see that I have a lot of flannel that needs taking care of as well?

I might just give it a go. Wish me luck!
