I did it!! I finished sewing in the last end last weekend and all in all it has taken exactly 2 months to show you my finished blanket
There are 204 squares for a 12 x 17 blankie. It’s a good size stretches out over your lap with room to tuck your feet up in it too.
I love it!!! I know you shouldn’t rave on about your own work, but I have really enjoyed making this blankie, the squares were so quick and easy to make, And the joining just flew by. I love the finished product. I just adore how all the colours just go even though they were never planned and in fact are odd balls I had just lying around.
I enjoyed making all the squares and then joining them all up, but there was one mammoth job at the end. With 204 squares that meant there was 1054 ends to sew in. God I’m so glad I didn’t work that out until just now.
Even with all those ends I still love love love this blanket. It’s everything I envisioned.
I do plan on backing this one with some fabric, to make it extra cuddly and warm. But for now it’s all ready to go for snuggling on the couch.Did you spot the cuckoo clock in the backgroud. I’m so thrilled with this new little treasure. I bought it off Amazon for an absolute steal of $8.00. It came bright pink but I gave it a revamp and I now find myself looking at it all the time. Well now I have finished my impromptu blanket it is time to get on with those hexipuffs I’m still at around the 180 mark so only about half way so I really need to get knitting. Better get on it
Love to all
