Just For You Quilts

One of the service projects for our local guild, Gwinnett Quilters Guild, is making quilts for the children at a local children's hospital. I'm not very proficient at machine quilting so I like to make Rag Quilts to donate. It dawned on me last week that if I didn't get busy I wouldn't have a quilt to contribute this year. My stash closet has a selection of flannel. There is a need for quilts for teen boys. Because we have lots of boys in my family, I try to purchase "masculine" flannel fabric.  Thursday, I pulled fabric and left-over batting and cut 10 inch squares. Friday and Saturday while sewing with my Thimbles friend, I sewed the blocks and began the rows. Joining the rows was a bit of a strain for my Featherweight so I waited to do that at home with my Bernina and walking foot.
Yesterday, I finished the rows, clipped the seams, added the label, washed and dried the quilt. Done!!! Today is our monthly guild meeting day. I have something for Show 'N Tell and can hand it in:) Looking forward to the guild meeting today!

Just beautiful and looks so soft and cozy. Wondering if the back was all the same fabric.
