All these layers combined make for a wonderfully soft and warm quilt. I decided to go with black and white striped binding. I think it sets off the colorfulness of the quilt very nicely.
I enjoyed working with flannel and am absolutely in love with the finished quilt. I did, however, learn a few things while making this quilt and would do things differently next time. I normally go with 1/4 inch seams, I think flannel would benefit from wider seams. After I washed the quilt, I had 2 or 3 areas where my seams came undone (not a fun experience). I also think that raw edge applique might not have been the best use of flannel. It unravels a little differently than regular quilting cotton, something I did not consider in advance, and I had to hand quilt around most of my circles to keep them safely attached after washing.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend, Svetlana.
