The Beast

This is Bev's quilt and she has named it "The Beast."  Why "The Beast" you may ask?  Well, this quilt is 100% flannel, and a generous 90" x 105" and it gave Bev more than a little aggravation during the piecing process.  It came close to earning a one way ticket to the burning barrel, but I'm glad Bev persevered as it really did turn out wonderfully. She handled all those stretchy bias edges like a pro, as there were no issues for me to contend with when it was on my frame.  Bev chose the Mimosa panto, and a variegated Lava thread with Quilter's Dream Blend Batting.

Bev now has a love/hate, hate/hate relationship with flannel and has decided to try becoming a "batik snob" in the new year!


  1. Fantastic job Lori. She will be impressed. There is no way I would tackle something like that.

  2. Yah another batik snob in the making...good job Lori!

  3. Bev has company when it comes to flannel quilts. If you must make them (they are so cuddly for little ones) the key is SMALL. I admire Bev's determination. If I remember correctly Bev's quilt is for someone very special so time shall ease the pain. I agree batiks are wonderful. Lovely quilting, Lori.
