    It grows pretty fast at this point, of course that depends on the width of your strips as well.

    This is where I am at the moment, I did the cutting and the strips yesterday, the sewing so far today took about an hour or so. so it is pretty quick to put together.

    This is about half of what I need.

    Now to finish it off, depending on what you are doing with it, you can serge all around it or put binding of your choice,

    It started when I did one with minky instead of the denim for my daughter, if I were to do it again I would use smaller strips, I think these were 6"

    She loves it!

    I am still cleaning up minky I think.

    I don't understand - why 4 strips? - please explain!

    There is two strips per row. One flannelette and one denim. When you add on you start with the foe and add the next row to the outside. Matching denim to denim and flannelette to flannelette. Making it four.

    What I was seeing is that you have a front and back then you add a new strip to both front and back and serge all four layers. When you flod back the new strips you now have the front and back strips to add the next set to. Does that make sense?
