Around and around

These triangles are for the next round of the medallion quilt. This quilt is getting to be a good size and I hope to add the triangles all around, and then one more plain round, and then I'll decide of it's big enough. No advance planning for this quilt! I was thinking of adding in more of the free-pieced star blocks, but I'm uncertain about that right now.
Meanwhile, I've been looking through my scraps for bits of flannel. Finn of http://finnleah.blogspot.com/ was writing about making a flannel quilt from scraps for a donation quilt. And I thought that that was such a good idea. I use flannel on the backs of baby quilts, and there are a lot of scraps left from the edges. I wonder if a quilt made of flannel with a flannel backing even needs a batting? I'm still donating things to Serving People In Need. I just knitted a hat for them. Speaking of donating--I managed to send off my little wall hanging to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. I posted a photo of the hanging on June 9th.

I have a bunch of flannel scraps to use up someday too. Can't even think about playing in flannel right now though!

I made several flannel fronts and backs - left out the batting and quilted them up for nephews who live in the South. They work great. And, much much easier to quilt too.

Those triangle rows look great! I have a hard time sewing them together. Do you trim corners to make it easy to match them up right, or what do you do?
