That's theory anyway.
I was so excited when she gave it to me and immediately knew that I wanted to turn it into a quilt.
Then it sat.
Waiting for some vintage fabric friends to come along.
After that I stalled. There really aren't that many vintage Christmas flannels out there you know. And modern flannels just aren't the right shade of '70s green.
Finally I found that striped print. It's probably more '80s and early '90s, but I like the colors and I'm not set on making a perfect, era-correct quilt. Just something warm and snuggly... and a little bit kitschy.
I think I'm on the right track.
Now, if only I could stop getting sidetracked by other (more pressing) projects. Then I could finish it well in time for next Christmas!
