So here's the thing, Tula Pink creates beautiful prints. But they're also kind of difficult to use all together. There's a huge range of scales and crazy colors. I purchased some Plume precuts and struggled with what to do with them. Finally, I called in a degreed artist for help. We worked out a layout and I pieced it - measuring and marking every seam.

What to do with the rest of the sweatshirt

I cut it into 4 in. squares and used it as batting in a crib-size rag quilt of 5 in. squares of quilt weight cotton. It worked well. It's not as fluffy as cotton batting, but it has a nice weight, is sturdy, and is green!
