- Start looking: Go through your stash and get out several pieces of fabric, including fat quarters. You need about 3.5 yards or roughly 3 metres for the top.
- Start backing: For the back, take your fashion fabrics, corduroy, wool, or a big piece of sheeting that measures about 62 by 82 or sew pieces together until you get that size. If you have quilting cottons that measure 3.5 yards or more, cut that fabric in half across the width and sew the long seams together for a backing so it measures about 84 by 64.
- Start cutting: For pieces a half yard or bigger, cut them 8.5 inches width of fabric. You will need 15 strips WOF.
4. Start sewing: For this blanket pictured here, I had two different blues and several coral fabrics. Some of the corals were fat quarters. I cut the corals strips in half to measure 8.5 by 20" (or whatever half of WOF is) and sewed the coral to the blue. I sewed the long blue/coral strips together, alternating the coral from left to right. 10 strips makes a top 80 by about 60.
Thanks for having me post to you all and to Stash Manicure and
