Now that I have diligently worked on the crazy quilt for at least 4 consecutive days, I am putting it aside so that I can try to finish hq'ing and binding my flannel quilt (approx 55" x 55"). I usually like to sew a continuous binding, it seems so much simplier than sewing little pieces together. This time I have no choice. This is what I have left of the material I am using in the quilt. Actually, I am pressing into service the green plaid fabric left over from another flannel quilt. I might need it.
I will be needed approximately 240" of binding. I really wanted to use the black striping (yes, it does have stripes on it) by itself, but ...not enough. So I am going to cut all of this into bias strips and hope I will have enough. Being flannel, I need to cut the strips a little wider than I usually do because of the thickness, which will add to the suspense. Oh, well, I have some pink pasley and some blue flannel I can add if necessary. That would really turn heads!
