Boys Flannel Quilt: Finished

I finished the boys flannel quilt that I've been working on and posted about here and here. The finished size is 50" x 60", which is generous for a young boy or toddler.
I quilted it using straight stitching 1/4" from each block seam. This seems to be my preferred way of quilting lately. I just like the look and think it is especially appropriate for a boys quilt. That, and I still have a fear of free-motion quilting.
For the back, I used a green houndstooth flannel that has a nice contrast to the light blue polka dot binding.

I am pleased with the final results. It's very soft and warm for these cold, cold winter days.

Have a great weekend!
I've linked up to up to Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday.


  1. Oh I LOVE the colors & fabrics and pattern, this is awesome! Would be very cute for a girls' room too, or neutral. So warm and cozy!

  2. I love the colors and pattern too! And I also have a fear of free motion quilting. I have all the tools but I'm afraid to try it!

  3. This is lovely. It looks so cozy. BTW, you don't need to be afraid of free motion quilting. It takes a little practice, but you can do it!

  4. Beautiful. It looks like it is ready for some snuggles. Nothing better than a blanket that welcomes you and this one does it! Nice work!

  5. Beautiful! And then flannel too!
    I love it
