This line of fabrics is so soft and cuddly, with an exceptional weight to it. Buggy Barn has done it again with another line of flannel that we have been very impressed with. This line of flannel also had a panel that generally we find hard to work with as most panels are not printed with the quilter in mind. We decided to work with the panels and used even all of the pieces in the repeat. The Nine Parch is the alternate block which has always been one of my favourites!. This quilt would be great for anyone on your gift list!.

This pretty line of flannel is so beautiful. We thought we would use a pattern that has caught our attention. I have seen this pattern done in many ways. We decided to make the nine-patch with a dark fabric in the center of each block to give these blocks continuity.

Number of Blocks: 40 Size of Quilt: 32" x 56" (without borders)
53" x 73" (with borders)
Requirment: Assortment of 12 Fat Quarters
This line of flannel batiks has got different traits than the traditional quilters' flannel. The fabric unwashed has more stability and has a more velvety touch. Also the dimensions of the width of fabric are around 40" with salvages. Keep this in mind when squaring up, be frugal and of course do not wash before you get started. Also some of the cutting instructions are odd because we are cutting the large squares into pairs, as the assembly of the block requires this.
