|Shhh! My assistant wanted me to crop her out. But she's just too cute!|
It came together really easily! I just cut the largest sized rectangle that I could get out of each item of clothing, centering the logos. I cut rectangles from spots with no logo, too . Then, I laid them out, trimming and rearranging until I had something that worked.
When the blocks were together, I spray basted the top to a yard of snuggle fleece. A little bit of stitching in the ditch holds the front and back together, permanently. I finished it off by bringing the edge of the fleece around to the front, turning it under once, then stitching with a running stitch.
|Binding clips = no pins in the carpet!!|
I am so pleased with the way the binding looks!
My favorite feature, though, is the pocket from the front of a Hoodie that I included at the top. It's placed in exactly the right spot for the user of the blanket to tuck her hands into in chilly weather.
|This is NOT the recipient of the quilt. Just my cute assistant, again.|
If Hailey decides not to take this blanket to school with her this fall, I know her mom will put it to good use. It's perfect for snuggling under by the fire, watching football games on chilly Friday nights, or just to cuddle with while reading (and, I'm sure, missing her oldest child).
I'm going to link this post up, but I'm not sure where. What are your favorite link up parties?
So far, I'm linked at Monday Making at Love, Laugh, Quilt, and Let's Bee Social at Sew Fesh Quilts
Have a fantastic week, quilty friends!
