Alva’s Flannel Quilt–Block Tutorial

I’ve had several people ask me for this pattern. My friend Alva has demonstrated the block at Thunder Bay Quilters Guild.

One note about her quilt is that the fabrics came from a fatquarter bundle of flannels.

Each block consists of:

  • 4 different 7 1/2”x3 1/2” rectangles
  • 4 solid 7 1/2”x 1 1/2” strips
  • 1 3 1/2” square

1. Sew on black strip to each of the rectangle prints

2. Choose your layout for the block and one of the rectangles with the black (or your solid) to the square. HERE IS THE IMPORTANT STEP: only sew half way from the bottom edge.

3. Press this section. (Press all seams to the black strip) and sew your next rectangle as shown:

4. Continue with the next 2 rectangles:

5. and finally finish the first seam. Alva added black sashing’s to her quilt when joining her blocks.

Now that I’ve made a block I am going to have to add this to my quilts to make list.

I’d love to see other versions, so if you make a quilt using this tutorial and would like me to quilt it this winter I will supply your batting! Just mention this tutorial. (This offer applies only to January and February 2013.)

Also note that I now have several wide quilt backs for sale to my quilting customers all backs sell for $15. a yard. You will only buy what your quilt requires.
