I LOVE chenille. ADORE chenille. It delights me.

I was talking about it at a Project Linus meeting, and the coordinator says to me "OH! I will bring you the BAGS of chenille we got a while ago!"



I was TRYING to stay calm, so I said "BAGS??"

She said "Yes! Some woman makes chenille bedding and donated TWO!! big trash bags FULL of chenille scraps. Do you want them?"

Umm... "YES!!!"


They are all different sizes and ALL kinds of colors from pastels to rich browns and greens. I am thinking rag quilts because most are smaller sized, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE chenille in rag quilts!

The resurrected rag quilt thread made me think of it.

Yes, I DO just go to the closet to pet it.

Lucky you. Now we will want to see pictures of the quilts.

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

Let's see now how this works. I resurrect the rag quilt thread and you get the chenille. Wonder if the reverse works. You resurrect a thread and I get the goodies? Seriously Cat, that chenille couldn't go to a person more likely to make the best out of it. The AMAZING out of it. I'm so happy for you. Happy petting.

Oooooh, my throw in the living room is a combination of minkee and chenille and it is the cuddliest. Chenille scraps - I am so jealous! Yay you!
