Chenille for As Far As The Eye Can See

I have been a chenille making fool!  I finally finished the blanket for the baby shower I have to go to tomorrow!  I have only used bright colors in the past but I love how the pastel came out!
Although the colors are not true in this pic.

They came out better in the up close photo though

I used yellow for the base then green, blue and pink flannel. The top color is predominant, isn't it? I have three more to do for gifts then 2 Halloween ones just b/c I think they will be cool! Those are going to have to wait though. I have one finished and waiting for a baby, now I know where it will go, then I basted another girly one last night so can begin sewing soon. The third one is in progress. Here are a few sneak peeks

This one is kind of a secret so I have to just show a little peek of it.

Tonight I am going to try making the apple pie filling and canning it and also caramel apple jam. DH is going to help me so it should be a fun filled night at my house!! LOL ~XOP~

How pretty... I've not seen one of these before! Is it hard to make the chenille blanket?

Looks promising! Are you covered in threads and snips yet *lol*
You made me hungry; to keep my waistline, I'll go and eat an apple (from my own tree!) and think of caramel while eating it :)

Love it! I'm seen this before but have never made one. Would you consider a tutorial, and how much flannel does it take, a specific type of flannel?
