Friday Finish

I had this finished a few weeks ago but, apparently, I didn't blog about it. 
 I did manage to finish my chenille blanket.
  I found this fox fabric at JAF last year and could not resist purchasing some. 
 It made the cutest blanket!  This is what it looked like after I washed and bound it.  


In this photo you are seeing it after the wash and before the dryer.


One of my friends on IG asked what the lint trap looked like during the drying process so this is my lint trap about 15 minutes into the drying cycle. 
 Not as bad as some of the ones I have done though.  
Always make sure to check about every 15 minutes.  


This is what it looks like before going into the washer. 
 All the rows are cut, the blanket has been squared up and bound.
If you are interested in how to make one you can check out my tutorial page.


Apparently these are not just for babies.  Cats love them also!


I will link this up with Crazy Mom Quilts for her Finish it Friday.  

I will be working on the hand stitching down the binding for the first wedding quilt this weekend along with cleaning up the house for house guests next weekend.  
Of course we will also be making some great snacks for Super Bowl Sunday too.  
What are you up to this weekend??

My cats spend their days sleeping on the various quilts around our house, so this is a familiar sight ;o) Thank you for participating in the 2016 FAL, on behalf of the global FAL hosts :o)
