Not Quite a Finish Yet

The Treehouse Party quilt is quilted, but not bound. I used a large meander to keep it soft and drapey. The backing is flannel, so this should be a cuddly quilt after it's washed. 

I thought I had enough of the stripe to bind it. Turns out I have less than a quarter yard, plus some off-cuts from the sashing. I checked the green, and I have a little more than a quarter yard. I need 5-1/2 WOF strips. I really wanted the stripe. Grrr.....

I might possibly be able to make it work if I make self-piping binding, but I need to research the widths to cut and calculate if I have enough fabric to make it work. I would want the stripe for the majority of the visible binding and the green for the piping. Wish me luck!

  1. Piping might just squeak out and work. Fingers crossed!

  2. Should work because, counter intuitively, the piping actually is the wider strip!

  3. Ugh! I hate it when a binding plan falls thru!! Here's hoping you find a way to make it work.

  4. Good Luck!!! Math is not my strong point these days... I think the heat fried my internal calculator haha!
