64 strips x 40" = 2,560" in length, now to get an 88" length I guess I should sew 44 70 x 2" strips one after the other. Does that leave 21 70" strips out?Originally Posted by omak
I think I'm going to get a King size all cotton batt and make it bigger to use up all these expensive strips. The Queen size is 80 cotton 20 poly - originally for a wall quilt which is on hold - I'll put it back onto that project shelf. I like sleeping under 100% cotton anyhow!
Now I have to figure out how many equal size strips will get me to a width by length for a king-size batt leaving the border width and reserve batt for take up during quilting. More later or tomorrow - have to a bit of 'survival to quilt another day' work!!
