Just one Honey Bun

How far can you stretch one Honey Bun roll? Into a nice nap sized quilt, I say! ;)

It measures 50x74. I was able to get eight 5" bars from each strip. A total of 320 bars, split into five rows of 64 bars each.

I'm leaning for an orange thread for the quilting, but I'm just not sure. I think red would be too bright against the background fabric. Maybe it just needs to age a little first. ;)

It sure feels good to be sewing after my overwhelming week!

Love this top. A question - how wide did you cut your strips

That's adorable!

@Brenda - HoneyBuns come in strips of 1.5" wide. Kinda like how all JellyRolls are 2.5" strips.
