The next step was to cut my flannel in 9½” square blocks too and sometimes I amaze myself. When I went shopping for flannel in our dearest city, with very little to offer, I bought 3 meters, not knowing how big my blocks would be or how big the quilt I plan to make would be and low and behold it turned out just enough for 70 blocks with a teeny weeny bit to throw away.
With this done, it was time to start cutting my top fabric in the amounts of each colour I would need. These then got layered with the backing and flannel
Then pinning the sides followed
Using my trusted laser light I stitched edge to edge to form an X (or giant cross) in each block through all 3 layers.
