uber cuddly chevron

When I was growing up, my grandmother had a pink flannel tied quilt that I loved.  It was very simple, the same cute pink flannel with little white puppy dogs on both sides, plain white cotton ties and binding. I don't know what was used as batting, but it was about 1/2" thick.  It was heavy and warm and comforting.  This is what I grew up thinking a quilt was supposed to be. 
This quilt gives me that same feeling.  The front is flannel, pieced into chevrons, the back is minky and it has a nice thick natural cotton batting.  

The quilting simply follows the chevron pattern, I really like both the look and touch.
