A Baby Quilt UFO

Last summer when I was working at the mission in south Louisiana I found this cute flannel baby panel on sale.  All I had to do was sandwich it and quilt it and I love the way it turned out.  I used flannel for the back and the binding too and I must say, when flannel is against flannel, that fabric doesn't move!  In fact, not matter what I did it was hard to quilt because the fabric seemed to "grab" my sewing table.  I even sprayed my table with silicone spray a couple of times and still it drug.  I don't have a baby in mind for this one but I'm sure one will turn up - there are always babies happening somewhere in the family!




This is my fifth UFO completed this year - I'm pretty excited!

You are working on dwindling that UFO pile!! I seem to be adding to mine. I like this panel. My daughter used this theme for James' nursery! I painted a moon with cow jumping over it on his wall.
Keep stitching!

cute baby quilt. Yes, I agree that flannel on flannel is difficult to sew.
