With a lot of helpful hints and tips from a lot of lovely people,
here is my completed 'Confetti' quilt top!
I took the advice to treat the flannel just as normal cotton,
Quilt shops in Northern Ireland normally stock very little flannel fabrics,
so I never had the opportunity to use it before.
I found that the flannel didn't stretch at all.
The fabrics, put together by the Seattle Quilt Co., are lovely
and the colours blend so together so well.On another sewing note, Sarah at Fairy Face Designs has launched a
series of sewing tutorials, aimed at people who want to learn to sew.
I was delighted when she asked me to contribute!
