Abbi May' s Exclusive Quilt Kit: Sue's Flannel Patchwork

Now in two colorways: Green or Blue!
We love flannel quilts and thought you might too!  This easy patchwork quilt uses one our 5 Yard Quickie Patterns : PATCHWORK.  These quilts use 5 yards of fabrics and are very easy and fast to make.

If you want a really cuddly quilt use light poly batting or flannel and flannel on the back like we did!
Finished size: 64" x 90"

Sue (our quilt pattern tester) wanted a more patchy look and choose nine 1/2 yards of flannel fabric from Moda's Wool & Needles Flannel by Primitive Gatherings and Maywood Wollies and added a little texture by using 1/2 yard of dark green chenille.
She cut strips 6" strips instead of 6 1/2" to maximize the  yardage.

This kit top sells for $75.00 + shipping for top and binding (includes 4 1/2 yard flannel and 1/2 chenille)
