Jenny's Chenille Quilt

Jenny O tried this technique for making chenille.

She started with a fabric that had a chevron print she could follow for stitching. She layered up the chevron, wrong side up with three more layers of flannel, right side up. Then she stitched all layers together, following the chevron design in the fabric.

Because she used pink flannel for the top layer, the quilt has a real pink cast. 

Here is the back. Jenny said it was a lot of stitching but, she also bought fabric to make another so, it must have been fun! The next one she is making has a diagonal stripe rather than the chevrons.
