This is my last project highlight of the Top 10 of 2015 from the Fat Quarter Shop.
I really enjoyed making this one.
At first I wasn't sure what fabric to use - that is until Paperie by Amy Sinibaldi arrived.
I was smitten with Paperie and I knew it had to be made into a baby item - items.
I don't think this will be my last Paperie quilt or project.
The Bloom and Bliss video that accompanies this receiving blanket free project can be seen here:
This post is a bit heavy on the pictures, for some reason I was camera happy when I sewed.
I have a big cutting table - thankfully.
Since I began sewing this around the holidays
I didn't want to get my design board out - company was coming!
The video shows very nicely how Kimberly pins her pieced top for the receiving blanket.
She goes into detail about the corners too.
Luckily I had already purchased this nifty creative grids ruler for another project.
It really made the corners easy. Easy to draw, sew and cut.
Here are a few peaks of my blanket.
Tomorrow is always fresh - right at the seam :)
Look at these corners! I used Aurifil thread 50wt. for my entire project. For some reason Aurifil is the only thread my Janome 'likes'. I have tried others and my mother in law has a Pfaff and she can only use Connecting Threads thread successfully. Makes you wonder why? Maybe there's a reason.
Sorry I digress...
Here's the finished receiving blanket top.
