I LOVE making chenille blankets!
You all know this.
I have a good friend that is expecting a baby any day now.
In fact I think she was due a few days ago, as my friend said, "She is taking her ladies time".
I decided at the last minute to make a chenille blanket for her.
I always have one or two basted and ready to sew.
So I took the girly one and stitched it up.
I LOVE how great it turned out.
Love, love, love the dark pinks in this.
My tutorial to make one is on my tutorial page if you are interested, or
for a pieced back, you can find it on the Moda Bake Shop right here.
It was the only finish I can share.
I had another one but can't share it just now = )
My friend, Karen, is from Brazil.
She always calls me Flor (flower) and her son LOVES cats and so do I)
so I thought this back fabric was purrrrfect!!
I loved that the touch of orange in the backing fabric was picked up in the orange background of the chenille.
I have sooooooooooooo much more to share but I am exhausted so will share more tomorrow.
Have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend to all my US friends!
