Awhile back I added a collection of bright flannels to my stash. Not sure WHAT I was thinking I'd do with them, but I coveted them and I bought them as a pre-cut kit for making a rag quilt. I had no intention of making a rag quilt, but buying kits saves the time it takes to cut fabric. And so they were washed and SAT, and SAT, and SAT. I pulled them a couple weeks ago, and used several of the 1 yard pieces to make flannel pillowcases for grandsons. I also decided to cut a few of them into 3" strips and make a quilt for Grandson # 7, Quenten. He's 5 now, and a middle child. Everyone around him talks, so he rarely has to. My observation is that he could use a little "special attention", so he will be getting a mid sized quilt that looks like these blocks. I've done a version of someting similiar(?) to the bento boxes that I've seen pictured in Keepsake, I think. These blocks are made of 4 single blocks, and now measure 16.5". I think I only need 12 or 16 of these, and I have that many made. Now to lay them out. I will tie the quilt, and he'll have a quilt that matches his pillowcase. It'll be good for his two brothers to be a bit envious..*S* Call that Grandma wisdom!
