Flannel progress

I didn't get home until 6:20 p.m. which makes for a long day at work, but I managed to find a little bit of time to work on the flannel quilt. First I dug up a picture of the one I had made earlier this year for reference and realized that there is no border. I guess I had forgotten what the quilt looked like!

So I took the gray flannel and cut it up into 8" squares for the alternate blocks. Now I didn't have enough of the gray for the whole top so I did the same thing as I did for the first quilt. I had some navy print and used that for the center alternate blocks. Here is the top ready to sew together laid out on the design wall.

I still have a few 9-patch blocks left.

I am taking tomorrow off and I am looking forward to a 4 day weekend. The husband of a woman I work with is coming over on Friday to cut up the tree that has been laying in the backyard all summer. It will be good to get it removed. I will just roll the chunks down the hill into the woods on my property and it can just rot. Then let's see how far I can get on the flannel quilt. Maybe my new mower will show up and I can try it out as the grass needs a haircut!

Have a great weekend and a wonderful Labor Day! I can't believe it is almost September already!

I think the addition of navy looks really nice, makes the quilt more elegant.

Someone might like that wood for their fire pits or fireplaces.

I hope you have a great weekend (and yes, how is it September? I'm sure I must have slept through a month somewhere). I like the slightly sombre, manly colours of these flannel blocks. They definitely make me think of winter - in a good way.

Love what you have done I will spend the weekend crossing my fingers that Droian goes North!

I just sewed up some very old blocks in a similar manner but like yours much better. Perhaps it's the double border of grey around the center navy.
