OPERATION: ERADICATION for a GiveAway Cause

That's right. I've decided to eradicate all flannel from my stash. Over the past few years, and few children, I have acquired many pieces of flannel. I rarely use the remaining scraps of flannel as I do regular quilter's cottons. Last week, I made up 4 double flannel layette-style blankets. These will of course be donated to Project Linus, and will likely go to the local premie wards. They are soft & colorful, but I have had my fill cutting up flannel. It's hard on my rotary cutter and mat, and harder on my wrist.
So, in celebration of my 300th post (whoo-hoo...! HA), if there is anyone interested in a healthy box of flannel scraps, leave me a post. If anyone's interested, I'll select a recipient this coming weekend. Here's what's in the box...
There's a gallon zip loc filled with scrap pieces, MANY strips of different pieces ranging in width from 3-5", and a number of 3" charm squares, some stitched together, some not. If you know someone having a baby or make donation baby quilts, there are more than enough to do an "I-spy" or small charm square stye quilt. I'd do this myself, but I am out of the mood to cut them and to store the fabric for a few more years.
Later this week, I'll post pictures of two fantastic quilts I received today. Stay tuned...

Hey supermom, get give away. I love working with flannel.

What a wonderful give-away idea. I'm sure whom ever wins will appreciate this flannel, as I know I would.

Funny, as I never wanted to try flannel quilting until recently. As I love making Linus and other charity quilts I decided to try my hand with some flannel. I really do like it. So, if you do select me I'd make sure your excess flannel got turned into quilts for Linus, premies, or any other charity you selected. Just fun to make.

But again, whom ever wins will certainly appreciate your flannels.

I woiul love to have flannel scraps. We get some might cold winter days and everyone loves snuggling with flannel. I have made a couple baby rag quilts this winter, but suspect I will need to make more this year.

I live here in the Shetland Isles,
a little far perhaps
for you to post this quilter
a bag of flannel scraps,
but I'd still be delighted,
if you'd add me to the fun,
and just one thing before I go....
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!
