Shaggy Flannel Quilt

Can I just say that this quilt is much more beautiful in real life than my photo shows. I was madly rushing to finish this quilt before Easter because it is for Miss 23 (peeking out from under the corner), our Easter visitor. She is taking it back to Melbourne with her today. Apparently it is cold in Melbourne and she really needed a quilt. In fact Melbourne is all sorts of things that Adelaide isn't I think. Last month we had a storm with hail. Tiny pieces of hail that melted on impact. Melbourne had the same storm later and had almost golf ball size pieces of hail. (Miss 23 took photos) I just can't help but think that Melbourne is an overachiever! So, here is the latest quilt to leave my sewing machine.

LOL! I like being thought of as an overachiever I think, though technically we don't live in Melbourne, just Victoria. Love the quilt, definitely will come in handy during our cold nights ;o)
Have a good week

Ah, that was the quilt you were making a while back and Mr 15 was making one as well. It looks nice and warm. I love the shaggy quilts, maybe this year will be the year I make one.
