Cozy Flannel Blanket

Baby Blanket
40 x 40 inches
I rarely sew with flannel, but when I saw a pile flannel squares at a thrift shop for less than a dollar, I could not resist purchasing them. The squares quickly came together in simple four-patch units. The blue and turquoise flannel was on clearance.

Sometimes the Quilts of Valor are returned to me from the longarm quilter with extra batting attached, and when I trim the quilts, I keep the batting pieces. In this case it only took three pieces of scrap batting to cover the 40 inch square baby quilt.

Some flannel remnants were used for the backing and binding. I did some simple cross-hatching to secure the quilt layers.

The extra binding fabric was used to make a burp cloth.

Blanket and burp cloth have been laundered and will be donated to a local charity.
