A Cozy Finish

I made a pair of cozy flannel pillow covers this week.

Two big, soft, flannel pillow covers

The quilting was inspired by that I used on the flannel zig-zag quilt last month and QuiltShopGal's 2015 FMQ challenge for February.

Quilting Detail - RR TracksFor the challenge, I chose Option #1 which was to use Leah Day's quilting design Rail Road Tracks.

It's a little difficult to see on the plaid on the front, so here's a photo of one of the areas filled with the required quilting design from the back. It is probably not a design I would choose to use, but the challenge pushed me to do it anyway.  (It's always a good thing to try something new.)

Flannel Pillow - FMQ Challenge for FebruaryEach of the pillows is 24 inches square. They were pieced from flannel scraps from my stash.

The backs are plain (unquilted) flannel.

The edges are finished with a quarter-inch binding made from more flannel.

Here are photos of the quilted piece, front and back, before it was sewn into a pillow.

In addition to the February FMQ Challenge, I am joining the list for Richard and Tanya 's Link-A-Friday Finish

Those pillows look great with your plaid quilt!!! I love that rail road track free motion design. Stay warm, it is snowing here so likely at your place as well.

Very nice and cozy matching pillows! I love flannel especially on these cold winter nights. Your FMQ challeneged you! Great job!

What a great set. Love the quilting on the pillows. Love that little sample of the Railroad. What a great pattern! Seems like a lot of work though.
