How to make a Strippy Flannel quilt

This is a cute little baby quilt someone had sewn and given to my friend Latacha.

It is made by cutting strips of flannel (lets say they are cut 6 inches wide.)  Put two layers of flannel with a narrower strip of lowloft batting (about 4 inches wide) in between the flannel, so the batting does not extend into the seam allowances.

Each section is made of a quilt sandwich:  flannel, batting, flannel, with the right sides out.

Sew the sections together using a 1" seam allowance.  All the seam allowances should be showing on one side of the quilt.  Topstitch all the way around the quilt, 1" from the edge.

Now clip all the seam allowances and wash the quilt, to make the clipped seam allowances get fluffy.

  1. Um yeah, so I guess I really don't know how to sew because I only understood about half of that explanation on how to make it. It's super cute though!
