Oh Scrap! : Flannel

Sadly, I didn’t get any of my scrappy HSTs this week. I went to go see if I could find any big gray scraps and I got sidetracked by Mount Flannel.

I have received a lot of flannel bits and I have just been piling them on a table in my sewing room. 

I guess I was in the mood to deal with a few of them.

I pulled out a lot of the smaller chunks and decided to cut them up into 6.5” squares.

I then sewed them up into this cozy quilt top. I probably won’t be quilting this top until the Fall but it was nice to make some progress on the flannel scrap front. I still have enough flannel scraps to make another three or four tops but they will have to wait for another day.

Happy Scrappy!


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework

That's a neat design! Sometimes sewing with squares is just the best thing. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy! said...

I too have Mt. Flannel. . .You are always inspiring me to use up the scraps in a way that pleases the eye. You've inspired me today! I hope Arthur is being a specially good boy to his mama today!

This would be a perfect quilt to work on in the fall. It is so pretty and cozy looking.

I love this flannel quilt. It's always nice to deal with the mountains of fabric pieces every so often! ~Jeanne

Love this quilt! This is a pattern that would work for our charity quilts. Mostly simple, but that border spices it up. Larger squares, like this, are what our group needs. I’m glad that inspiration hit you :)

Good for you for making a dent in your flannel fabrics. Not too many people would be interested in flannel quilts just as summer is starting.

Pretty flannel quilt! How do you press the seams? I have some pieces of flannel just sitting there that could be turned into something.

Scraps are scraps and a finish is a finish! It doesn't matter if it was part of your plan or not. Nice job! Thanks for hosting the party for all of us party-goers. Blessings!

Out of the piles and into a quilt has to feel good. Hope you get more time for the HSTs this week.
