So, I cut as many 2.5" strips as I could from the leftovers and then sewed them together in sets of six.
Cut again and reassembled I ended up with 4 12.5" blocks (Bonnie Hunter's website Quiltville has a brilliant explanation of how to do this)
A quick purchase of some Moda Sweet Baby flannel from Plush Addict and I was all set.
The binding is an aqua and white pindot cotton that was all I could find in the local fabric shop, but it works I think.
I am really pleased with how this turned out, and will definitely be looking more closely at the wardrobes of the men in the family from now on :)
