Our Neighborhood

I started “The Neighborhood” quit almost 4 years ago when asked to created a flannel quilt that we cuddle together under on cool nights in front of the television. It sounded like great idea and and wanted to base it on the neighborhood that we lived in at the time. What I didn’t take into consideration when selecting the fabrics and batting, is when you use two layers of flannel and cotton batting for a queen size quilt it is very heavy and hard to push through the sewing machine. I ended up finishing up machine quilting the quilt in small sections over a period of almost 2 years. It was worth the effort….even the dogs want to lay on portions of it on cold winter nights.
