Paperie Receiving Blanket - a Top -10 Video 2015

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.
Ready to be gifted.

I love your choice of fabrics. They look beautiful together. It was nice to see someone else's take on the same pattern. See mine here: http://www.thelostapron.com/2016/01/baby-bliss-receiving-blanket.html
