3 blocks and more quilting......

One more quilt quilted.  I made this one for me.  The flannels are so soft they feel like velveteen.  I had loaded the backing on Friday night and needed to cut the batting yesterday.  This one has Hobbs organic cotton batting with scrim.  It is very soft and worked well with the flannel.  I bought this batting while I still worked at a quilt shop before August 2000.  I guess it is about time to use it.
I made 3 more X and + blocks, 2 quiet ones, and one that is shouting.  I also did a lot of pressing fabric and cutting more pieces for the next 10 blocks.  I'm pretty sure I'll stop at 30 blocks.
Now I have to decide whether I want more lighter blocks.  I like the mix that I have made so far.
I promised several people that I would share the preemie gown pattern.  I left this photo large so when you click on it you should be able to read the measurements for all 4 sizes that we make.  Visit this post to see them sewn up with serger stitching on all edges and a neck ribbing.  We run ribbon through the neck ribbing for them to tie as a closure.

The flannel stars looks wonderful quilted.

The blocks are terrific. I like the three blocks with the corners in different fabrics.

Your X & + blocks are so much fun to look at. I know I would never attempt to make even one block yet alone an entire quilt top. So I am living through you once again as you create away.

Your flannel quilts are wonderful and I can see they will warm your body as much as your heart. Just lovely.

I saw a post either here or on another blog that there was a sew-along on instagram--what's the hash tag for it?

I like the flannel stars. It will be very warm and cozy! The loud blocks keep the quilt interesting.
