    One of my Hospice patients is an amazing lady that is bright and cheerful and always busy. This fine lady had some little squares of flannel, and sewed them together into a rag quilt effect, with only one layer. I took a photo of her project. Then she used the Self Binding technique, directions included also. She usually makes these blankets with just two different flannels, but this one is her original unique idea. I wanted to share her idea with you for this binding.
