Flannel Scrap / Utility / Memory Quilt

Recently, while organizing our storage room,
I found this quilt top that I made a few years ago.
It is made from flannel scraps left over from
various projects.

Some would call it an utility quilt, 
a scrap quilt, 
a memory quilt, or
just plain ugly.

For me, it's a super snuggly, fluffy quilt
that we will love to pieces!

To maintain the soft puffy feel,
I used polyester batting and 
only a little quilting.
Stitched in the ditch at the block seams
and then diagonally.

The back is a thrifted flannel duvet  :)
