    are you going to go for the chenille?? try it, its pretty fun. you can even do it as one large block. just sew diagonally across the whole area with 1/2 inch between the stitch lines. use at least 3 layers, maybe 4. it makes a very nice baby quilt with no blocks to join.
    good luck, post pics if you do one of these pretties.
    yes nana, think i will try that as I have some flannel for another baby quilt and there is going to be a new baby in the family soon. however, i'm not up for a full quilt. Might try it for a jacket tho. that would be real neat. will post if I ever get anything done. Thanks for all your help!

    What a lovely idea, have only seen cushions and bags made up this way and our Group is going to have a teach in on this soon and I canīt wait to try it out.

    Its made a gorgeous quilt though I love that idea. Elle

    I used this technique to make bathroom rugs. I sewed 4 layers of 6" x 6" fabric on to a piec of fabric the size of the entire rug. I left enough material on the back of the rug to fold over to the top for a binded edge. Then I sewed a 3" strip of matching chenille to the band near the bottom of the towels. They hold up really well. :)
