BONUS TIDBIT DEMONSTRATION: How to maintain a flat seam when you can’t have a butted seam
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!)
We have kits available for both quilts and this week, we’re adding a few more Orphan Quilt Kits to the website. This is a lovely time to get some sewing done!
See you next week!
