    I make pillow fronts out of mine and if I have enough left over they are the backs too. LOL Sew them together for a quick doll quilt. Even make mittens,scarves, book markers (my DGDs love them.. I make them several as they do read alot) with glittery jewelry attached (get the jewelry from the 2nd hand store-unique). When I add the jewelry I will make it at least 3 or 4 fleece pieces thick to counter the weight of the jewerly.

    I used to sew a lot of fleece, and beside the hats and mittens, socks are another great item and boy are they warm and comfy! Green Pepper press makes a great pattern and can be found in a Joann's near you. I am unaffiliated with either company just like the pattern and I have made a lot of socks.

    fleece scraps

    I made a teddy bear for my grandchild. She wanted something like a "Peef" that was featured at Christmas. I made her a bear from leftovers from her baby quilt, bassinet cover, nursing pillow, shopping cart cover. Each arm, leg, side of head, ear, etc were from different pieces of fleece. Her dad thought I had bought it, till Mom pointed out all the familiar fabrics

    It sounds as if you have enough for a lap quilt. You could put seams outside and ruffle .i would use any pattern with large squares rectangles.

    Here is a Rag quilt which one of my group did with a stash of oddments I had, it went all the way to New Zealand and is well loved.
