After washing and drying it I was pretty impressed with its quality. Anyway, I have all the squares cut and matched with square. Next in line will be assembly line sewing hundreds of two 6" squares together. First to come out of those will be a throw for my DH and one for myself for our loveseat recliners and next will be throws for my Mom and sis. My goal is to not have any flannel left in my stash at the end. Planning to make crazy patch pincushions with the flannel scraps and then I know someone who uses flannel scraps. I have never attacked my stash like this before. It is sorta energizing!

    Would love to see your project with flannel in progress. Can you post pics? I have a whole stack of flannel scraps and need to make two baby gifts.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Sandy, I will post some photos as I get my project going. So far, I have those paired 6" blocks stacked at the foot of my sewing table. Life is getting in the way some right now.

I think I had to purchase the backing as I didn't like anything I had to use. Does this stil make it 90% or not???????????????
    I love this! What size are the largest squares in the blocks?

    Trying to get some things done this weekend. Have to leave for Atlanta (Conyers, actually) on Wednesday. My BIL died on Thursday and we're going down to be with my sister for a few days and to attend the memorial service. Trying to finish another Quilt of Valor first - it's totally stash also. I'll post a picture of it (it's in progress, almost finished).

    Lois M, the largest blocks in my Scrappy Asian are 6", I believe. The pattern is downstairs and I'm trying to remember. I have to take some pictures and post them tomorrow, so I'll pull the pattern back out and check that at the same time. I had plenty of the flower blocks to make a 3rd quilt, but not enough of the black and that gold/white. I'll find something else in my stash and start another. Thought I'd try that butterfly pattern everyone was talking about in the very first pages of this thread. But, Atlanta first and then home again and back to my comfortable grind.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond, Kathleen. I'm very sorry for your loss. I'm sure you'll be a great comfort to your sister.

    Kathleen sorry about your loss


    I started working on this idea this week. I started making lapquilts for neices and nephews for Christmas. I made about 40 half log cabins in three hours thiswee. I will post when I get some things done. Most of this is from my stash. I am buying some blacks and greys since I don't have many of those and that is what one of my neice wants.

    Kathleen's quilt is, I think, Scrappy Asian Road from the Oct 2011 issue of Quilters World.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
