Easy Quilt - Pinterest Pass or Fail?

A few weeks ago I pinned this Soft Flannel Quilt that originated at Do It Yourself Divas. The original design was meant as a baby quilt, but I liked the idea of a lap quilt and imagined lots of plaid flannels on a chilly night.

The idea was simple, layer 3 layers of flannel in strips and sew them together. The top of the quilt has the raw edges of a rag quilt and the bottom has the right sides of the seams. Check out the Diva's quilt:

Pinterest PASS! Though I have lots of strings right now, the Divas assure me that is normal at first. Some of my plaids may not have been true flannels and will shed more threads.

It's a nice comfy lap quilt for watching TV on cold nights.

Lori at Waterstone Jewelry tried a recipe for Apple and Winter Squash Soup this month.

What Pins have you tried this month? Did they PASS or FAIL? Toss me a link so I can check them out!


  1. Have a great Holiday. I've pinned a lot of recipes, but have yet to make anything. It's like out of sight, out of mind. Still opening the cookbooks.

  2. I made this recipe. Complete win. I left out the sundried tomatoes though because they're not my favorite.


    I'm addicted to pintrest!

  3. Great quilt, love the seams showing on the front :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  4. I like your quilt!

    I haven't had time to make anything in a long, long time but I'm hoping to squeeze in a Pinterest craft today. If it works, I'll let you know.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  5. I love the fabric you chose. So warm and cozy... Thanks for trying our tutorial! Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. I have made lots of things, and most are awesome! http://www.everydaymomideas.com/2011/03/scrap-paper-tree-centerpiece-tutorial.html This is a real winner and lots of my friends are going to try and duplicate it. I have also made many of the sugar scrubs, scrabble and glass tile pendants, button bracelets, rice heating pads, popcorn snowman and lots of art lessons! Most recipes work out awesome as well. The only real bust I have experienced was the glass vase that you put rubber bands or twine around and then spray paint white. It dripped, went under the bands, and all around looked cheap. Thanks for this awesome forum!
