Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who has shared their experiences using flannel as backing and thank you for those great batting suggestions too!
I've finished my version of Rachel's Value Dance Quilt for the Value Added Quilt Along and I am pretty proud of how this project turned out!!

I love learning more about colour and fabric choice and this project has taught me alot about value and how to use that to my advantage. This is the first quilt I've done without buying new fabrics - these fabrics are from my stash and remnants from previous projects. This is also my first project mixing fabrics from different lines to make a quilt ( something I've never done before ) - usually I'll use fabrics from the same line as I know for sure that the colours and prints will match each other perfectly.
I've quilted straight lines, outlining either sides of the diagonal hour glass seams and extended them onto the borders. I've used the same border fabric - Triflora print from the Lou Lou Thi collection for the binding.
The backing is from the Flannel Pretty Paisley Garden collection - cream with multi coloured dots and I've used Warm & Natural cotton batting in between. This quilt finished at 53" x 62".
Overall, I am so glad I took up the challenge and this is yet another favourite quilt that I have made thus far.
Happy Quilting and thanks for visiting!
Edit to note:
I'm linking up to the Value Added QAL linky party happening over at Leila's of Where the Orchids Grow. Hope you'll check out the other quilters sharing their lovely value added quilt creations.
