Miss Kate Raw-edge quilt

One of the first quilts my sisters-in-law made was a Raw Edge quilt using the tutorial by Ros @ Bloom and Blossom, and it has also been one on my to-do list.  
So when I happened across a fat eighth bundle of Bonnie and Camilles' Miss Kate flannel recently, I decided to buy it to make a quilt using this method.  
To make a 7x8 layout though, I needed a few more squares but found just enough Bliss aqua dot flannel leftover here from making the backing for my Red Letter Day quilt last year. 
I also bought a watermelon coloured King sized flat flanellette sheet on clearance at the end of winter to use for the back of the squares as it matched the Miss Kate perfectly.
It was quite easy to layer these flannel squares together and I just quilted them in a big "X" through the centre.
I laid all of the squares out on my design floor and tried to alternate colourful blocks with the lighter blue of the Bliss flannel.
And after a couple of washes it came out all nice and fluffy!
Ros's method of making the quilt includes binding which finished it off so neatly.
I think this was quite an enjoyable quilt to make as it involved using a different technique.
This was on my FAL Q4 list for this year so linking up with Adrianne @ On The Windy Side.

  1. Cute and it seems so easy. How big are your squares? I would love to make for cuddling up on my couch. I will have to wait though. I have made a promise to myself and a couple of my kids that I won't start anything new until my UFO's are under control. Thank you for sharing!
