(thank you dictionary.com for the definition)

flannel

It's also the husbeast's favourite word (mine is knickers, Miss G's is beverage. Ginger isn't bothered about favourite words yet), and so it seemed fitting his quilt should be made of flannel.

I labelled it too - with Ginger's way of saying I love you back in the days when he was tiny. Husbeast and I sign off our text messages to each other with it still. We're quite soppy really.

Although it's supposed to be the husbeast's quilt, I actually have been using it, because I get colder than he does (being whippet like and quite pathetic). He doesn't seem to mind, probably because he wudges me.

deets;
78" x 62"
Pattern loosely based on turning twenty, but measurements of pieces guessed because I couldn't for the life of me find the pattern in my studio.
Fabrics used - Anna Maria Horner flannels from LouLouthi and Folksy, backed with pieces from Innocent Crush and bound in voile.
Long arm quilted in a loose honeycomb pattern by Chris.

What a beautiful quilt! It looks so cozy and inviting that I can imagine it is hard to pull yourself away from snuggling in it on the couch. :)

Wonderful quilt and a very grown up photo of it!!

Rebecca said...

Beautiful, I love the colors! Also happy to hear of a fellow quilter who's fond of using baby word blunders in their everyday "grown-up" language.

It's beautiful, I am sure it is super soft too.
Plus, any fabric that Anna Maria Horner designs always makes for lovely quilts.

You are now going to be responsible for adding the word 'wudge' into the Urban Dictionary. But your photo is lovely and the quilt even lovelier!

So cute! My daugher is almost 11 and pronounces stuff incorrect sometimes and the hubby and I don't correct her and just start saying it too. For example.....oatmeal she said ouytmeal. Vodka is vodika and umbrella is umbre-ella. It really would be better if you could hear it.
