Textured Blanket - The Finale

I'm done. It's finished. And I am pretty pleased with the result. I used a plain quilting cotton for the border, flannel for the backing and satin for the binding. Here is a close up of the border, it is cuter than it looks in the big photo.I loved that it pulled in all the colours that I used in the blocks. The flannel for the backing is purple with all kinds of coloured dots. I learned a lot in the process as is always the case when creating something new. If I ever do it again, I'll do somethings differently, be a little more precise in some places, and avoid some fabrics. But all in all I think that it was a success. My biggest hope is that the little girl that it is for will adore it and it will fulfill it's purpose in helping to calm her. I really hope that it will be something that she treasures for along time. It thrills me to know that another one of my creations is heading out to bless someones life.

If you missed out and want to see more of the process in making this blanket, check out here, here, here and here.


  1. I just notice now, looking at this photo, that I mixed up two blocks in the sewing process. ROAR! Oh well, to late now! Can you spot which two blocks have been mixed up?

  2. I can't tell! It looks great :)

  3. I can't tell either. You did a great job and I'm sure the little girl will love it!! How many unisex car seat covers do you have made up, and are any of them the $20 price?

  4. What an awesome quilt! I love the border fabric.

    BTW: I got the green fabric you sent for the fat quarter swap and I LOVE it! I actually got it last week (maybe the week before?? Can't remember) but am slow to make my way here. :) Lisa
