The mystery quilt revealed!

Have you ever worked with flannel? Ok wait.. have you ever made an entire quilt top with flannel? I hadn't until now...Since last October I have been receiving an installment a month from Border Creek Station.

320  1 1/5 inch squares...
162  3 inch half square triangles...

Yeeeaup. Me and Mr.Seam Ripper have been very good friends. There were a few hairy moments where I thought I was going to lose my sanity.. I just kept sewing the wrong things..bags are mixed up. I was in a fetal position at one point. But I got 'er done! And boy has it turned out to be a beauty.

Alot of interesting things to learn when working with flannel. The best one was STARCH! This made my life SO much easier when it came to cutting and sewing.. 

I was moving my fabric around today and just put a big fat grin on my face...There is something really awesome about rainbows.. and more awesome when they're just scattered around everywhere.

so you get this

to this..

Getting on with the flowers as Pride Parade is creeping up slowly!!! I am so excited! I can't wait!
