Quick Tips and Tricks for Quilting With Flannel

Tuesday Tidbits quilting video blog archives

    We LOVE sewing with flannel – especially on a nice snowy, winter day! There’s nothing better than snuggling up with a flannel quilt on a winter day! This week we have a couple of beautiful flannel quilts that, truly, are super easy to make. We’re starting off with a flannel jelly roll, adding a couple of accent fabrics, and next thing you know, you’re singing – “Well, the weather outside is frightful…” (I know you’re singing along with us!)
