Hello,I am making your oink a doodle moo chennille baby blanket and need some advice. The marble blue flannel is only 43 1/4" wide selvedge edge to selvedge edge. My pieced back is 45" what can I do? Should I cut the back at each end to match the flannel and leave the selvedge edge on the flannel?Should I center it somehow to make it equal on each end and just lay the other flannels on top and continue? I wish the manufacturer would produce fabric bolt of the same line in the same width. Thank you for any assistance you can provide. I really love your blanket and can't wait to finish it and give it to my grandbaby boy. Sincerely, Nancy
I have tried to comment previously and am not sure that it has been received.Thank you for your very thorough tutorial. I am a new quilter and love the Oink a Doodle Moo chenille baby blanket. I need your advice/assistance. I have pieced the back together and am ready to layer the flannels. My blue flannel is only 43 and 1/2" selvedge edge- to- selvedge edge, uncut.and my back is 45". Should I leave the selvedge edge uncut and cut my back equally on each end to fit the blue flannel and then shorten the other flannels to match or center the blue flannel lengthwise and layer the other flannels over it and continue according to your directions. Thank you.
Hi Nancy,I tried to answer you via email but you are "no reply" and have no email address in your profile! Just lay your flannel layers on top of your back and baste, sew and clip as in the directions. Then when you are all done, go ahead and square it up. You will waste some of the backing but you want it slightly larger than your flannel. It should all work out. Here is my personal email and please email me if you have any other firstname.lastname@example.orgGood Luck!!~ Pam
