January Quilt of the Month

In 2014, I'm going to change the quilt on my bed monthly and share its story with you. I'm sure that I have more than a year's worth to choose from.

This is a queen size quilt made of flannel fabrics. The pattern is Yellow Brick Road by Terry Atkinson. Marion, of course, has an identical quilt. I think a couple of the other Brown Baggers also have one. If you've never made a Yellow Brick Road quilt before, I recommend it. It is a quick and easy pattern that is fun to make.

I purchased the fabric for the quilt below back in May of 2004 at the now defunct Tala's in North Adams, MA, during our annual Berkshires quilting retreat. I finished the quilt in May of 2011.

The interesting ladder-shaped reflection on the
quilt is from the blinds, it is not part of the quilt.

As always, my quilts look better with a pug or two on top. LarryPug on
the left, Elvis on the right. Romeo was downstairs napping.
I have to admit that I don't really like the colors in this quilt. I brightened them a little in iPhoto. I hate beige and the whole thing is kind of drab to me. I have ordered some new batik flannel from Sew Batik and will make a new flannel quilt, hopefully by next year.

As you know, it's been bitterly cold here in Boston as well as in many other parts of the country. In addition to the flannel quilt, we also have a down comforter and a heated mattress pad on the bed! Hope you are staying warm! And I hope that my Australian friends are staying cool!

Adding links on Friday to Richard and Tanya Quilts at  Link A Finish Friday (Happy 100th Richard!) and to Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Thanks for visiting! 

Pugs and kisses,


  1. Will your Rose and TexasTriangle quilts be featured?

  3. Can't wait to see the next 11 quilts!

  4. What a great way to share your quilts and I love any pic with a dog in it LOL :)

  5. I love any and all Yellow Brick Roads. They always look so fun and I love how easy they are. Nice fabrics. I think we need more purple in our quilts. :)
