I worked on my Christmas flannel lap quilt this week, making lots of HST's with the free triangle printouts

It's amazing how much design goes into something that seemed like a simple project. First it was digging through the flannel stash for colors that looked good... I chose the red and the paisley.
Then I was at a quilt shop selling coordinating fabric so I purchased the red that went with the panel, so I mixed some of it in.
Then I had to decide what size HST to make, make a bunch of them, and decide how to border this. I used black flannel to space the flowers and had to be careful to make the flowers frame the edge perfectly. I love how it looks! The green inner border has red and green dots on it too.
I'd have left it like this but flannel stretches and pulls out because of the loose weave so a border was needed.
I made another couple of hand pieced EPP hexie star blocks...

So, that's about it for this week. I painted (posted on Friday) and sewed, I read and wrote, I was inspired by so many in blog parties and tutorials, and by music on youtube.
Looks like our snow from yesterday... enjoy!
