Done with the flannels

Who knew...after I finished cleaning out the flannel bin I ended up with:
     1 - Turning Twenty quilt top cut out
     20 - 30" square strip blocks
     30 - 15"  square pieces and parts blocks
     8 - 14 x 16" brick blocks
     28 - 10" squares
     37 - 6.5" squares
and a shoe box full of 2.5" strips.

All from left over pieces from all the flannel quilts or backs I've made.

I know I said I wasn't going to do anything with the pieces and parts. I just started mindlessly sewing them together. It was kinda fun. All the pieced blocks are random, no thinking involved, as you can tell from the combination of colors and prints I put together. Who knew I'd end up with so MANY blocks. Next time I need a scrappy flannel back for a quilt I will be more than ready.
What else have I been doing? Stephanie and I did a mini-quilt shop hop a few weeks ago, last weekend I went to the Folsom Quilt Show with Nancy and Karen (with more shopping) and this weekend I loaded a quilt on the frame and cut out a new quilt (super easy, can't wait to show you).
I have the next two days off - wonder how much sewing I can get done.
