Easy Flannel Quilt

I saw this easy flannel "quilt" on pinterest and knew it was something I wanted to tackle.
With a little of help I got it made just in time for my brand new baby boy.

I ended up making it a little different than the tutorial, but still think it turned out cute. 
I made mine 40"x40"  with 4" squares, spaced an inch apart. There ended up being a seven row grid. I love the way it turned out, and I'm glad I made it a little bigger than the tutorial, because the flannel shrunk quite a bit after I washed and dried it.

For my squares I bought 12" pieces of fabric to work with... I really only needed 4" (or 5" to correct poor cutting jobs), so I was able to use the extra to get some matching burb clothes.

This quilt could easily be started and finished in a day.
So go on and give one a try.

Craft. Me. This.

Special thank you to my Mom and Roberta for helping with these projects.

I love it! It's so cute & I like how it's different than what you normally see around. (Wondering if I can think of an excuse to make one too!) Glad everything is going well for you & your cute family!

Wow, cool comment above this one! My cousin gave me some burp clothes just like the ones you made for my baby shower and I LOVE them! They are the best burp clothes to use and they look super cute with some fabric on them. Good idea to use leftover fabric on yours.
