The following fabrics I cut into strips:
I bought a German flannel blanket from Overstock.com which was a better value than buying the flannel at a fabric store. I layered the skirt fabric, the flannel and a solid fabric to make 3 layers and then sewed a stitch down each strip. Then I lined up the strips in a pleasing to the eye order and sewed each strip together. Then I clipped all the seams. Earlier I made a rag bedspread and had trouble clipping with regular scissors. I bought new scissors at walmart that made this process so much easier.
The following is a picture of the scissors I used to clip the seams.
Then, a trip to the laundry in town to wash and that caused the seams to fray. Then home to my dryer because I think that the commercial dryers are way too hot. The following pictures show the final products. As you can see, I had enough fabric for 2 throws.
