Hand Made Quilts sprinkle a home with love and are well, just lovely.
But how to find the time to create these cozy works of art???
The Secret…SIX INCH SQUARES!
Here’s the Very Simple Step-by-Step…Hold On…This is Quick!
Step One: Select your favorite fabric patterns and textures, With a rotary cutter, cut the fabric into 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ squares. Stack squares in a pile ready to build. This will be a crazy Mix of Patterns. But all in Flannel.
Step Two: With the width and length of the quilt decided, sew the squares together into rows, then sew row to row. You’re building the Quilt Top.
A cat friend may help with the construction, then again, maybe not.
Keep going…everyone is still asleep and you’re building a masterpiece.

Shhh…take a break with Coffee and an English. You’ve got this!
Step Three: Now make a Quilt Sandwich;
Quilt Squares are the Top. Middle is Batting. Bottom Red Tartan.
Fold the bottom fabric over to the top for an edging border. This frames the quilt and keeps everything in place. Stitch around the border, then “stitch-in-the-ditch”. Sew Up and Down. Side to Side.
This mix of Cozy Flannels is Perfect for Fall.
A Little Bit Crazy. Certainly Fun. Quick to Make.
And that, my friends, is the MAGIC.
