Flannel Days Charming Thursday

A Flannel Days charm pack & pattern will go to the winner of the this week's giveaway. If you haven't cuddled with the new flannels, you've missed out! I was so thrilled with the feel of this fabric, but of course, it's come and gone in most shops already. Moda was unable to precut charms at the mill, so we've cut one just for this week's winner. I'm hoarding most of what I have since several of my kids have requested quilts made with this line. Even for quilt backs, it's positively yummy!

We created a simple project to showcase the flannels and keep it from getting bulky in the seams. It's amazing how "fluffy" the quilt feels!
Cheryl Ross from Heaven on Earth quilt shop in Wabash, IN made the quilt and is in Houston at Festival with a load of KT quilts and patterns. Check with her if you're interested in a kit.

Here's a look at one of the new quilts from market, Bird's Eye View, our block-of-the-month for next year. Each of the blocks was selected because of it's historical bird name, such as Hens & Chicks, Dove in the Window, Circling Swallows and Hovering Hawks to name a few. The wool & cotton appliques, buttons and stitchery add personality and dimension. So much fun to see it come together. For those of you who make KT Favorites-10 Years & Counting last year, this project is a breeze!

Watch each day thru the weekend for a new quilt/project and a peek at Sandhill Plums, available in your local quilt shop in February 2012.

Question of the day: Do you enjoy block of the month projects? What's the last one you made?

  2. I do enjoy block of the month quilts. The last one I started earlier this year but haven't finished the sashing, etc. yet. It has black and white blocks, but you could put in a splash of color in each block if you wanted, so I did double the blocks and put red in some and blue in others. It will be an American Heroes quilt to go to a recuperating wounded warrior at Joint Base Lewis McChord near Tacoma, Washington when i finally get it done.

  5. The flannels are beautiful. I only did one block of the month and it was through a local quilt shop - a santa wool quilt.

  6. The flannels are just gorgeous! They looks so soft.

    Right now I am working on Barbara Brackman's CW BOW. I enjoy making BOM quilt. Last year I did a BOM with our guild. I brought your KT Favorites BOM, but haven't started it yet. I have made some of your other BOM type quilts. Love your new one, Bird's Eye View.

  7. Those flannels look luscious and the patterns are wonderful.
    BOM - the last one I did was "All Through the Year" by Prairie Grove Peddler.

  8. I do like BOM because I love a deadline. But I need another deadline to finish the quilt!!

  9. I'm getting in the mood to sew some flannels, weatherman predicting some cold weather. Love all your fabrics.

  10. I started making a block of the month with some quilting friends, but I never finished mine. I do love working with flannel, and I am making two baby quilts from flannel as I write ;-)

  11. Love your flannels; love BOMs. I'm signed up to start your 10 year BOM in January. Congrats on being on the cover of Primitives magazine, yet again. I think that quilt would be great in flannel! Last BOM was Henrietta whiskers by Anne Sutton... janet

  12. Love the flannels. I have done a few block of the month quilts. I enjoy trying new blocks. One of my favorites is one I did in 2001-02. A few friends decided to try a patriotic one at a local quilt store. We each dedicated our quilt to 9-11. It was also the beginning of our quilt group that now meets on a regular basis including retreats a few times a year- good therapy and great friends!!!!

  13. I enjoy doing a block of the month occasionally. I am presently finishing Women of Influence. It is half pieced and half applique. I thought it was a good opportunity to try hand applique. Love these flannels!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I tried some free block of the months, but then lost interest. I tend to quilt in spurts, so I might do a lot one, week and less in another, so I like to have the fabrics and pattern all at once, so I can do more when I want to.

    Love the idea of a warm flannel quilt, getting cold now.

  15. These quilts just made me happy. I haven't done any block of the month things so I don't know. I love the flannel days quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love your flannels - they look so cozy.

    I've done several block of the month quilts, and a few block of the week quilts. I like them - it's nice to have a little feeling of accomplishment every month, and then it all comes together pretty quickly at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, these are gorgeous! I have not done any bom but have been tempted so many times! I am making comment #17 and I consider it my lucky #. My husband and I were married on the 17th and have been married 34 years. Wish me luck.

  18. Can I just say that I LOVE your line of fabrics and the flannels have got me itching to make a quilt with them! I have done a block of the month but havent finished it... it is the Girl I left behind from Quilters Quarters in Leavenworth KS! ~Charlene

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ooh, flannel! So cozy! I'm working on my very first BOM now - ask me in a year if I'd do another. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have never done block of the month!! Thanks for the giveaway. Linda

  21. I just got into BOM last year and have yet to complete or even start one of them! But they are pretty cool. Love flannel.

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOVE block of the months projects! It's nice because you have a whole month to get the block done, and then look forward to the upcoming block! :-)

    LOVE that flannel fabric-- it not only looks nice and cozy-- it *IS* nice and cozy! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, I would love to play with those flannels!! We had our first bit of snow on Halloweeen and the temperature has been dropping ever since. So it's time to snuggle up and be warm doing some fun stitching!

  24. I love BOM's and am currently working on 3 different ones. My favorite is the KTQ quilt. I love the fabrics and colors. I found a box of 2 1/2 inch squares of your fabrics and am sewing them together to use my new Twister ruler and make a table topper. Such fun. Also doing General's Wives and Jan Patek's Bible Mystery. Love to make quilts.

  25. I love to quilt with flannels. The BOM I'm working on now is from Barbara Brackman's Civil War series. When I do BOMs it reminds me of school, I feel like I have a deadline to get it done. Then it doesn't become an unfinished project :) SWarren

  26. I love the warm colors in those flannels!

    I've yet to start a BOM quilt, but I know my mother likes them. They do seem like a fun way to try out a variety of techniques. They'd be ideal for the easily bored or distracted, too, since every month is a fresh start.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Flannels are beautiful. Thanks for cutting a giveaway for us. I love BOM's but I seem to collect them more than finish them! Right now I'm working on a wool applique by Kaye Moore.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm not entering the giveaway as I just won last week... but I do have to say how warm and fluffy these flannels look! Just might have to check in with Cheryl from Heaven on Earth to see if a kit is available!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have never done a BOM pattern. Love the flannel days pattern and fabrics :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yummy Flannels! Yes, I am currently doing the BOM from my guild. I have done two through the Country Loft. They involve a clever method of embroidery.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've not done a bom yet but am interested in doing one maybe soon! I love that Bird's Eye View quilt. If I did a BOM I would need to do it with someone else so I don't lose focus and I think I'd stay on track better. The flannels are beautiful and who in WI doesn't love a flannel quilt in the winter?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Our group just started a block of the month quilt.
    I love your flanels although I never worked with them.

  33. Love flannel! I like to do BOM's because it keeps me on task. ;-) I am doing a couple now and enjoy the time I spend with each one.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It was called Shabby Rose from Jenny in Australia. It was applique and embroidery, I really enjoyed the change and still have to put it together. Can't get it in my mind yet??

  35. I've seen plenty of BOM projects that appeal to me, but I don't order because I don't want to pay the extra shipping cost. I did recently see one which offered shipping in one package. That's a good idea, then I could perhaps make one block a month.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Flannel Days is such a pretty line of fabric. I am currently doing a BOM from Primitive Gatherings using wool. I love to applique wool!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have a hard time finding flannel prints that I like but I really love these:) I would love to have a quilt from them to snuggle in while watching TV or reading on the porch:)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love your flannels, I hope you continue to have flannels in your future lines.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Flannel truly is the fabric for this time of the year. :) I love how Fall-ish, and country-ish the colors are... :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love your flannels! I like to do block of the months - it seems that is all I have time for lately. I am currently doing The Cotton Club.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I adore your fabrics and always have! I am in a few BOM clubs right now...the blogger's BOM, one offered by a quilt shop, and several blog quilt alongs that are every week and/or every two weeks...I like the concept of always having a project to work on...sometimes I want to sew, sometimes I want to cut, and sometimes I want to quilt...a BOM keeps me with project in hand!
    Cheers!

  42. Hi Lynne, I have done some BOM's in the past, one was a Baltimore style. I have some BOm's printed and saved for when I finish my UFO's , perhaps PHD's sounds better? "projects half done"-LOL.
    I am working on some redwork stitcheries at the moment- a block of the week. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I just worked on the last 3 blocks of the Thimble Berries Quilt for this yr. all day today at my LQS.(my back is killing me)! LOL

    I'm almost finished w/a lap size quilt using one of your patterns~Five and Dime and really had fun w/it.
    I would love a chance to win. Love your flannels and other fabrics!

  44. I am using the flannel collection to make the quilt on the front of the new issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects....I think it is great that KT was on the front cover 2 issues in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I do like BOM's but haven't finished any yet. I've started one with snowmen and one with baskets. And I have a bagillion free ones saved on my computer LOL

    ReplyDelete
  46. Our little quilting group announced we will be making an upcoming quilt project requiring several different flannels. Since I have not worked with flannels, I have none in my stash, so if I win these gorgeous flannels, they will be put to good use making the quilt. I really like your pattern Flannel Days!!! Thanks for the giveaway! Lana

  48. Love the flannels - they are so soft. Thanks for the chance! The last BOM I did was one offered by our LQS - I don't know the name of it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love to use flannels on the backs of my lap size quilts. Your flannels are beautiful. BOM are fun. I don't remember the name of the last one I did.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The KT flannel would be a great backing for quilts. I do like this collection and thanks for the opportunity to win some. I normally do not participate in BOMs due to my impatience of wanting to work on my own timetable and not wait for the next installment.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Worked on a block of the month quilt a while back at a local quilt shop. Sadly the shop closed. I do enjoy block of the month projects. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway ~ your flannels are cuddly warm looking.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would LOVE to make a quilt with your flannel!!! I'm in the mood to make a 'hugging' quilt! Flannels give you such a great hug! Here's hoping I win!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Flannel is just the best to make quilts from. I've been using flannel on the back of my quilts for years, it makes 'snuggling' with a quilt so much better.
    I don't like BOM quilts if it's a design I really, really, really like........ because I just want to getin & male it at my own pace

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ohh, I would love to have those flannel charms. Would make a lovely mini quilt! KT flannel must be amazing. They definitely look beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would soooooooooooo love to win these flannels. You are my favorite designer and I bet the flannels are fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh flannels! yum, yum and MORE yum!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am thoroughly enjoying working on KT Favorites-10 Years and Counting. It is my first ever BOM and I am having so much fun doing it. Sometimes the blocks don't come fast enough. Flannel Days is a beautiful quilt. I would love to make it. It looks so warm and cozy.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love BOM quilts, but decided to purchase 10 Years and counting as a kit. I'm finishing up Women of Influence now. I love Bird's Eye View.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love, LOVE BOM's :D The last one I made is the one I am still making, which is your very own 10 Year...BOM. I am loving the monthly fabrics...the colors, the feel, the patterns. My local quilt shop that carried alot of your fabrics closed last year, so I am very happy to have the chance of winning your flannel charms. OhhAhhh, more fabric to cariss ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've only completed one BOM, however, I do like them. Life just seems to get in the way and the blocks get set aside to be finished 'later'. I have at least 2 tops in stages and patterns to finish the rest of the blocks. I've not ever made a whole quilt with flannels, so I'd like to try your pattern with those charms. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have never done a BOM, afraid to commit because of my health, but.....I finally gave in and will be doing my first one starting this month. it is from the KCStar collection via Fat Quarter Shop. I love the flannel. Thanks,

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love your flannels and patterns today. My absolute favorite is Bird's Eye View. Will be watching for that one. And I am another who has never completed a BOM. I'm not a kit person to start with, and time management is not my strong suit. I love the freedom of choosing my fabrics. I could make your pattern into my own BOM.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I haven't made a block of the month, only qal's with a similar idea, and I enjoy them very much. I don't blame your kids for putting in their quilt orders from the flannel line. And I love the Flannel Days design.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yes I love BOM projects. The last one I did was one from Thangles BOMs. Your Bird's Eye View BOM looks fabulous. I'm a collector of flannels and brushed wovens and would love to find some of these to add to my stash.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The flannels are yummy. I love them. The last BOM I made was large, 12, 12" block, appliqued Santa Claus seasonal quilt in memory of my mother who died on Christmas eve. I bring it out before/during/after the holidays. Renee

  66. I love the flannels! What's better than cuddling up with a nice flannel quilt in the winter?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I've not made a BOM quilt in the traditional way. I'm more likely to purchase a complete kit all at once. I would get too anxious waiting for the next installment. I just finished a Lewis and Clark Commemorative quilt. Excited about the Bird's Eye View BOM - it may have to be my first traditional BOM.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The last BOM I did was from Gail Pan - A Christmas wish. Made three of them. Thanks these flannels look very cozy.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love BOMs - as long as I get to pick my own fabric. I almost always have one going. It's fun to have something "in the works" that has no pressure attached to it and know that you'll have a great quilt at the end... though sometimes it's REALLY hard to wait for the next month's pattern to arrive! I love your flannels - there just aren't enough flannels with nice prints out there. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I've never done a BOM. I guess I'm just not that patient and disciplined. The flannels look yummy! Thanks for another great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love BOM patterns. Last year I worked on four at the same time. That's a little too much!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I like BOM quilts. It takes me a year to make a quilt anyways so it's a good reason to take so long to finish.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love flannels, and I especially love these colors!! I have never done a BOM. I really want to try one, I just need to find one that both interests me, and that I can afford.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Your flannels look very cozy. My last BOM was with a local quilt shop. I loved getting the fabric each month. Kathie L in Allentown

  75. Good Morning... almost forgot this week to post. Thanks to my cousin for reminding me. Yes, I love doing BOM, or just samplers in general. Most of my quilts are samplers. I just finished up the Amish Shop Hop here in Ohio Amish Country yesterday. It was two long days. They do theres by picking a fabric line, so it is a mystery for fabric and blocks and quilt finished patterns. You can purchase them as they are shown or get the patterns and make it your own. I have always done it like theres. But, this year I just got the patterns and I am going to make it out of my beautiful Kansas Troubles fabrics! I need two more pieces and the backing to put with my scraps to get it started.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win your beautiful fabrics and patterns! Enjoy this first weekend of November!

  76. I am a fan of BOM projects. I am a deadline kind of gal. The BOM's I've finished are done by the month and completed before the next package arrives.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The 1st quilting class I took was a block of the month ( calendar quilts). Because it was a 12 month program I became better acquainted with the other ladies. I love the fllannel days fabric. I just finished the puzzle quilt and it's just in time for cold weather. I can't wait to start your block of the month.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I had forgot to answer about the BOM. I love doing them... but my samplers keep me pretty busy. I did not know about yours last year, but would love to do it this year. I just sent info to one of my local quilt shops. She had your 10th BOM. I am hoping she does this years also! Would love to give it a try. It has been a while since I did a BOM. No time like the present to get started again!

    Happy Quilting...

  81. 26 degrees outside this morning, time to make some flannel quilts!

  82. I love BOM projects. I have participated in several online BOMs-they have been so fun.

    Your flannels are beautiful. There is nothing like them to cuddle under when the weather is freezing outside.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I've never done a BOM project. They look like fun though. I can't wait to feel some of the new flannel fabrics...bet they are marvelously soft.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I'm doing a BOM with my local quilt shop. We have two more months to go. I'm loving the blocks. Finally, I'm feeling confident enough to change some of the fabrics from the ones selected by the shop. Love flannels!

    ReplyDelete
  85. When will the new BOM pattern be available?

    ReplyDelete
  86. The Flannel Days fabrics are so soft you will think you have a kitten in your lap. With out the litter box and feedings. We here at Heaven On Earth just love them and hope you have another line of flannels next fall
