THE STACK READY TO SEW AROUND
MY ACCUCUT DIE CUTTER AT WORK
Box of 3 1/2" squares ready to go to a new home! There's an assortment of flannel in there.
QUILTING TIP OF THE DAY: Flannel is fun to sew with. It is cotton but has more give than regular cotton so be careful when handling in pieced projects. It tends to shrink quite a bit, so pre-washing is a good idea (I don't always do that as I love the old fashioned quilted look you get after washing the project). After pre-washing, iron on some spray sizing (NOT STARCH) as the sizing will help the flannel from stretching too much & makes for better handling when sewing. Also, when you press the seams if you press them open instead of to one side you will have less bulk. This is especially helpful when you hand quilt/tie the quilt.
