What I do when I should be packing...

A housewarming gift for my bed...
burgundy ...
and greens...
purples...
and oranges...
and toasted marshmallow creams.... each an amazingly soft flannel...
While sorting through my quilting stash...I mean packing..... and trying to arrange things for moving, I came across this flannel quilt kit that I purchased in Colorado Springs. We left Colorado in 2004 and this little gem has been patiently laying in wait. I pulled the fabrics out of the bag and just sat cuddling their softness. I decided the fabrics could be moved to Wisconsin as a kit or a top... I decided on the later and now all that's left to finish are the borders. As both the top and backing will be flannel I have chosen to have it finished with machine quilting. Hopefully within the week I can pack up the top and backing and send it on it's merry way to the quilter while I go back to exploring my stash...I mean packing.
