However, I spied a bolt of blue/neutral flannel on my shelf. In the end, there were around 5 yards on the bolt -- I truly never measured. I simply unrolled it and placed it on top of the quilt top spread out on the floor. I have only backed one other quilt in all my years with flannel, but I had just enough yardage to piece a length-wise backing. It simply will have to work.
Therefore, the batting I prepared was NOT warm-n-natural. Instead, I used up the last of my Thinsulate batting as well. This quilt really is using up every last bit of a few different things :)
The backing is pieced and loaded on the frame.
The batting has been cut, pieced and on the frame as well.
That's as far as I will take things today. The temps downstairs are quite chilly, and my hands/fingers have finally warmed back up from getting everything loaded on the frame.
We will finally be back to a normal schedule tomorrow at school. And I can guarantee at LEAST a few students who will insist on complaining that we didn't get more days off of school; there are always those few.
