    Red face Git'er Done Quilt

    Here's the story: Christmas is coming. I need to make something for the grandkids. JoAnn's is having a sale on flannel - 2 yd minimum at $2.99/yd. Great, wonderful! Bought variety, had shipped to house. Changed my mind on their gifts. Christmas is over - what do I do with all this flannel? Made multiple chenille potholders - didn't make a dent in the stack. Made chenille houseshoes - still overloaded with flannel and no place to store it. Let's rethink this. I need a project that will use up lots of fabric in a short amount of time. VOILA! Rag quilt - big one! Now I think I need to use some of the red and black with Tim-tex and make a set of checkers to use on the back side - that way the grandkids can really take up a lot of space, get noisy and have fun with Nana's foible. The quilt turned out the size of a queen bed top. Sure is snuggly and big enough to really wrap up in. On second thought, think I'll keep it just for me, ha ha. Irony, I still have enough to make another (but now have room to store the leftovers, so another day.....).

    Good use of the flannel. I want to make a rag quilt one day. Your's looks very cozy.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Thanx, ladies! I'm usually just an observer - sneak around looking at everyone's creative visions and drool. Decided today was THE DAY to post myself. Must be something in the water, lol.

    Great quilt, looks so snuggly. I can just picture the kids on the floor with it playing checkers. I'd probably join them.

    Very good idea! What fun they'll have crawling around playing checkers!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    How do you make your chenille house slippers?

    They will love them. I made the raw edge flannel quilts for all my Grandchildren and they used them for years and still do.
