i am certifictable nuts.
i found myself at joanns.
surrounded by bolts of flannel
tables upon tables of flannel
and i started throwing everything onto my (stupid) little cart.
really. they need some costco carts in that store…
so, the lady at the checkout asks me what i’m making….
and i know i have the deer in the headlights look.
like i have a clue..
but they had all this pretty black and white fabric
that makes it so you have 5 squares of each pattern= 25 squares all together. ie..crib size.
and sandwiched it in between each layer of flannel
pin in place
and watched burn notice…..
then i took them to stewart (the sewing machine) and sewed an x across them
Love this blanket…..may have to make one for my second grandchild coming in June. I will let you know if I make one. Happy Thanksgiving!

um, did you see the black friday ad for joanns?!? $1.49 flannel on friday and $1.99 fabric on saturday – – I can't decide which day to go, but will probably need to show up for both!!! joining on in with the rest of the crazy ladies….
I love, love, love the color combination. No lie, I am quilting a quilt in those exact colors right now. Well, not literally this minute, but you know what I mean. 🙂

love it! Thanks for the tutorial too. You made it look so easy I just might have to give it a try!
Black and white quilt.. that looks so cool and I LOVE the green binding.
Babies ~ new borns can see black and white and this would make a great blanket for them.

I love it! The green looks awesome against the black! I made a one like this a few years ago with old tees and jeans… yours is cuter!
Love it! I was JUST working on a rag quilt before I looked at this post too. I like your binding, I think I might do that too.

I love the blanket! My mom made me one for my little girl and my husband thinks that it isn't very soft so I'll have to have her try the batting inside. (I'm scared of my sewing machine so I do little things :)) Thanks for the great idea!
Kassi @ Truly Lovely says
The fabric you bought was PERFECT for this! The green goes so good with it too! Perfect for a boy or girl! 🙂

I LOVE this! I was at Joann's this morning and bought a ton of flannel with no clue what I would do with it. This is perfect for my cousin's baby!
Cute! I like that technique…simple and different!

I totally LOVE this! By the way i saw you at Walmart the other day and i was going to say "hi Kimbo, i'm a creepy lady who you don't know and i am totally addicted to your blog" but i decided since my kids were with me i would save myself the embarrassment 🙂
Why the heck to Joann's people think you have to have any idea what you you are going to use the fabric you are piling on the cutting table for? Don't they understand that sometimes it's just pretty and needs to be purchased? Silly people.
