Another blanket project

I was playing around with some templates I picked up when I was in South Dakota last July.  Want to make a crib quilt and have lots of flannel sitting in the stash drawer.  So thought I would make some test blocks to see how they look.  I really like the look, so will go ahead and make the blanket out of them.

Finished the lap quilt top

I finished up the lap quilt top.  Will send it out to be quilted after the new year.

It is 52 x 52 inches.

Backing and binding will be the same green as the background color.

Ok..came back all quilted, so finished the binding and got it sent off..Came out great.

New Project Starting

I have begun my next project.  It is called a Shimacho Quilt.  I am making a slightly smaller version than the pattern calls for.  I had a stash of Asian type fabric I have been saving for a special project.  This will work perfect for what I have in mind.  The person getting this will like it I think. are a few photos of the idea.

What the finished piece should look like… I like how the borders form a negative space

The sample shows all the fabrics from my stash.

The green cloth will be the borders (in white on the pattern) and will be the full background front and back and side borders when the whole thing is done.

The overall look..pattern, planned idea, cloth
