This fall, let’s focus on flannel! Check out this issue’s “A Material Difference” for the complete scoop on working with this different substrate, and then try it out with two all-flannel quilt projects—one, a traditional plaid rag quilt, the other, a sweet and chic modern tumbler quilt. Several other tried-and-true classics, like Courthouse Steps and the Orange Peel blocks get a makeover in this issue.
