Default Can you make a 1600 quilt with a Honey Bun instead of a Jelly Roll?

I'm casting around for an idea for a quick (but cute!) baby quilt. I found a really cute Honey Bun (on sale even! Green Fairy is still having a GOOD sale) & it made me wonder if you could use one of those to make a baby quilt instead of using a Jelly Roll to make a Jelly Roll Race (or 1600 or whatever people are calling it these days). It would make a smaller quilt since the Honey Buns are 1.5" instead of 2.5" but I can't see why that wouldn't still work OK, do you? Help!

Same concept, yes, it would work just fine. I made one using that technique and "Moda Candy Bars".

Sure, if I can make one by cutting width of fabric any size I want why not ? 1.5 sounds good for a baby quilt!

Oh, please post a picture of it! I'd LOVE to see it! How big did it end up being?

It would work just fine. You can also cut your stash fabric for the purpose.

I think it would definitely work. I use 3" strips and it adds 20" to the bottom of the 2.5" strip quilts.
