Over some years I accumulated quite a heap of leftover pieces of flannel from different projects. They were mounting up so I started joining them together. Most were small, thin strips, but just right for a scrappy quilt. Last year I bought the backing piece and over the winter months I have continued working on it. Now the quilting has been finished and it can be put to use - though of course we are in the final week of winter so it may not see much use until next winter.
