I had two basic problems. The first is I needed a creative break. I work on dresses (or baby blankets) just about every day and it all starts to look the same, KWIM? The other problem I have is a huge stash of flannel scraps. I save bits and pieces from customers blankets. Most customers don't want their fabric scraps. The pieces are just big enough to save but too small to do much with. I *hate* throwing fabric away.
Anyway, I have this quilt recipe book:
I really like this book because the math is already done. Just follow the cutting diagrams or use the templates and you end up with really nice looking 9 inch blocks. If you know of another quilt recipe book, please let me know!
Anyway, I pulled out my flannel fabric stash and made up a couple of blocks:
What do you think? I only need about 9-12 blocks for a baby throw....
