Winter Quilt for Alex

I'm planning on making Alex a winter quilt to take along in the car to keep him warm. I'm planning on doing the same pattern as in this picture except I'm going to use flannel. I'm planning on leaving the squares 8 inches instead of trimming them down like I did with this quilt.



In other quilting news. I showed my MIL the two quilts I made and the one I am currently working on and she told me I should try to enter my quilts in a contest. I told my mom what she said and she agreed with her. I don't feel like my quilting is quite that good yet though. I'm working on it. :) The hardest part is getting a 1/4 inch seam allowance since I don't have that marked on my sewing machine. The first seam allowance marked on my machine is 3/8ths.

I love those colors! Another "boy, maybe I should do that quilt" to add to my list. ;)

That is a pretty quilt, and is worthy of being entered. This pattern doesn't require a quarter inch seam, just consistent seams. As long as the seams are consistent, the quilt will be nice and square.

That is a beautiful quilt, I love your use of colour in it. Can't wait to see the flannel one as well.
