    I have spent the last four days sorting and cutting flannel scraps (mostly from making pyjamas and baby things) into squares and strips useful for making some quilts. I started with 4 BIG Rubbermaid totes crammed full of scraps, and I now have one box with just the bigger pieces - the rest is all squares and strips.

    So today, after all those days of cleaning it out, I sewed up three baby quilt tops. I will make more tomorrow. :mrgreen: It's not all baby fabrics. I am also going to make some napkins, potholders and other small crafty items.

    The colors in this picture are not accurate - the white is really white.

    Loretta, the first two are Disappearing Nine Patch.

    I will sell them when I am done. (at least, that's the plan. :wink: )

    I made two more baby quilt tops yesterday. I am good at tops. I have an obscene amount of fabric, but it's all smaller pieces, so I make scrap quilt tops. I have two stacks of them and a huge Rubbermaid tote full. I just can't afford battings and backings for them. :roll:

    They're all very nice and I don't think you'll have any trouble selling them. I really like the first one. I enjoy doing baby quilts too. A new mother can never have enough it seems.
