I started this with blue flannel and red sweatshirt fabric. I was moving happily along when I ran out of the blue flannel! I had other flannels, but didn’t want the edges to look out of place, so I cut up a bunch of old jeans and finished up the quilt that way. I used white cotton for the hand tying, but I’m not sure I like it. I may have to learn to machine quilt. What do you think? Does the hand tied look take away or add to in this case?
