I have been working on a quilt made from these bags and I have some words of advice if you are considering using these bags.
- These bags are similar to flannel, so be forewarned. I am not a fan of working with flannel.
- These bags will ravel if not cut on grain. Believe me when I say that they aren't cut on grain at whatever factory makes the bag.
- I would not make half square triangles from these bags. Ever. Again. Worst experience ever. I couldn't get points to match up and they were very stretchy.
- A pattern that features squares and/or strips is ideal to use with these bags.
On this quilt, those dreaded HST were cut as a larger square (5.25") and layered with a same size square. Draw a line diagonally from one corner to another, sew .25" on each side of the line and cut apart.
The finished block size of the shown quilt is 12", but I have another quilt drawn up where the block finishes at 8".
I now have this top finished and it is layered with a fleece backing, no batting. It will make a very cozy Christmas gift for a certain someone.
