About a year ago (or it seems like it!), I cut out the back and flannel. I like using flannel on the inside because I find it really easy to control and it is warm, but not too warm. Since then, I have been collecting other fabrics and now I think I am finally ready to get going. To see a finished quilt similar to the one I'm making now, check out http://catsongstitchery.etsy.com/ I like this style of sewing because I don't use a pattern or have a plan! I gather the fabrics, cut them into 6" wide strips in varying lengths (to make it interesting). I'll update you on my next step soon!
