    Just came out of the dryer. It's 8' by 6' as he requested. :D This is my 13th one, but this is the biggest, I think. Well, there was one other big one...

    Next project: students' bookmarks. I completed eight tops while this baby was drying. 8-)

    Exciting news: after Christmas (need room settled to do bookmarks) I will be switching my sewing room with our library. It's double the size, but that's not saying a lot because my present room is very very small. I can't wait!! :thumbup:

    It's a mixture of what was in the stash. I'd been saving the fall scene for a special occasion. Mark's special. ;-)

    Even a little from both my daughter's and d-i-l's quilts from last Christmas.

    And you can still use your hands to type??? This is a beautiful raggy, and I bet he just loves it. So far, all the flannel raggy quilts I have done are baby size, and just wore my hands out snipping the seams. I can only imagine how much it took to snip all of this!! Congrats on a job very well done!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I love it!! I'm making some and badly want one for myself, but no time! At least my lap is warm while I'm snipping away!
    I love the colors of yours. Your husband will love it!

    That is beautiful. I think it is the first ragged flannel quilt that I really liked. Your pictures made me want to make a ragged flannel quilt myself. How big did you make the squares? Thanks for posting the picture.

    Thanks! :-D
    Squares are cut at 7", so with a 1/2" seam, finish at 6". Batting is cut 5.75". I love them because they are as close to a hug to go as one can give, and when it's done--it's done--no sandwiching, quilting, or binding. :thumbup:

    To rag it doesn't hurt my hands much at all...I first cut all the corners up, then I lay the quilt on the ironing board with a seam laying toward me--and cut it from right to left (I'm backwards, I know), then pull it up to the next seam. Once one side is done, I turn it and do all the rows going to other way. This one took awhile, but my hands didn't hurt, except when I have to use the ends of the scissors in close spots.

    8'x6' LOL I have to make the same size for my hubby with Mickey and black. he hates having his toes stick out. and hes a blanket hog! just got a KING size comforter for our queen bed and he steals it all!!

    Nice use of leftovers from last yr. :thumbup: what does the back of a scrappy flannel quilt look like? and how many squares across and wide, and how many total? do you use all the same square for the layers? like 3 autumn squares for the one finished square.
