A couple days ago, I delivered a quilt to a longarmer. While it’s there, I thought I’d prep the binding, so it’d be ready to go when I got it back. Then I did the math… 404 inches. Ten width-of-fabric strips. MORE than 11 yards.
11 Yards. 33 feet. 10 meters. How big is that?
The first thing I thought of was a first down in football,
which is actually only 10 yards, but that’s pretty close.
A few minutes on Google revealed many other items.
This tape measure was much too easy.
A roll of electrical tape is 33 feet long:
Another obvious one – a 10m diving platform:
Into science? How about this dinosaur:

Lovers of sculpture will appreciate that Chicago’s
Cloud Gate (aka The Bean) is 33 feet tall.
Finally, the thing that got all this started?
The BINDING for a KING-SIZE QUILT!!!
