    I made one large block and it was too tedious for me to make more then one. I used the block as pillow top.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Do you mean the layers of flannel that are sewn in 1/2 inch diagonal lines and then cut? If so there are several chenille blankets posted on QB.

    I did - I used 3 layers of flannel for the back of a baby quilt - then quilted diagonal lines about 3/4 to one inch apart then sliced the first couple of layers between the quilted lines. It makes this soft fringy layer - when you wash it- its really nice and soft. If you google it you will find many tutorials for it too. Good luck.

    TOO tedious for me too.

    I made one square also and then added a zipper and made a small purse out of it. I keep my crochet needles in it.

    There is a nice example in Judith1005 post titled .....Little Girl's Nursery. She has a pretty Chevrom quilt, pillows and chenille blanket at the bottom of that post. Try putting the title in the search box.

    I have only made a sample square (it was not even a block) to see if I liked it or not. Well, I do like it & think it would fit in good somewhere on a baby quilt as they love tactile things. But, I'm not sure if I will ever get something like that made.
