So, the weather finally got a bit chilly. Thankyou! and Keely was looking around for a blanket to roll around on the floor with. The one she picked was just ugly. I didn't tell her that but my brain said, "MUST make her a snuggly, floppy blanket now." The next day I had this made for her.
We all like it and are fighting over who gets to wrap up with it. I made it with almost all thrifted sheets, hence the pink overload. There's a lot of pink sheets available at our stores. I also added some chenille and minky strips for some texture. I used all cotton batting too, which I love. I opted out on a real quilt with binding and all that jazz. I thought for sure I would go into labor with an unfinished blanket and fabric scraps trashing our house. So this was just a quickie- patchwork top, cotton batting, sheet backing and stitch in the ditch quilting. I wish I had the energy and the fabric to make a giant one of these. I heart this blanket. It occurred to me that I probably should be making the baby a blanket, but er…well… I didn't. But I did whip-up a miniature version of Keely's blanket for the stuffed cats she's been toting around.
Very practical. I have a few more things to show, but I'm having some uploading photo problems…again-maybe tomorrow.
