It Worked Out

You may remember a while ago I wrote a post ranting about my sewing machine and how it chewed up and spat out the flannel that I was using to make a quilt.  Well, it got to the point where I had to borrow a friend's machine (thanks Natalie!) to finish the blanket, but everything worked out in the end - especially because it came the breakdown came right in time - cue music for awesome Christmas present. (Although it was not from Devin technically, thanks Grandma Boling!!)

My friend just sent me a picture (thanks Hannah!) of her lovely cutie pie, and it looks to me like she likes it! (You're welcome, Madelyn)

I am considering giving flannel a second chance on my new machine, but the irrational part of me is afraid that flannel is just plain evil and will destroy this machine as well...


  1. Madelyn was mid-story about how awesome her new quilt is when I took this picture... I'm glad that it worked in your favor :)

  2. Aww Madelyn is so CUTE! And that blanket looks fantastic. Flannel is nice and soft though. Talk to Laurie about it. She has made quite a few flannel baby blankets. Although she didn't quilt them. She just hems the edges and uses them as receiving blankets.

  3. Fantastic design. I love it. Nice work, Ames. You perfectionist, you.

  4. I used flannel for the back of a quilt, and used regular fabric for the quilted part. That way I didn't have to quilt the flannel, but it was still soft.
