Wood Grain Flannel

This flannel quilt was so much fun to quilt. It was for a young man from his mother. She left the quilting design up to me. I didn't want to do something typical, like a meander, or stars, or loops. In Angela Walter's book she shows you how to do a wood grain and I thought, "How cool would that look on this masculine flannel?" So I went for it. And it turned out so amazing!

I threw in some knots every once in a while to give the design a little interest. The whole quilt is quilted in the grain, even over the borders.
Here's a closer look at one of the blocks.
And here's the back of the quilt: MINKEE! :)
