The first flannel I ever made was for my hubby. It has held up really well for being 12 years old! I did a utility stitch and tied it.
My next flannel was a mystery quilt class I took at the Stitchin' Post. My daughter is the owner of this one.
Once hubby and my daughter had one I couldn't leave out my son. I made this one in 1997 and it's been through 3 years of college too. The first year at college he told me he'd tell his friends that he needed to go get his quilt (while watching a movie, playing a game machine, whatever) his friends would say, "What are you? Little house on the prairie." Secretly I think they were jealous of his warm flannel quilt.
In 1993 my niece and two nephews moved in with us. Of course, I needed three more snuggle quilts! It's been one year since they moved back in with their dad- hopefully the quilts remind them of a warm safe place.
I had to laugh while scanning this photo. The oldest nephew will be a senior next year and is tall and lanky- and he smiles a lot!
