I've been staying busy "playing" with different projects. Last night I made a Mitered Corner Blanket. The pattern is from the University of Utah. A lady from a local quilt shop made it and it looked like a fun baby project. I have a new great niece and a new grandbaby on the way so this should come in handy.
You use 2 pieces of flannel. One piece is cut larger than the other. I cut the print flannel 32" square and the pink flannel 42" square. The pattern explains how to make it better than I can explain. Once the pieces are sewn together and the corners are mitered, I ironed the blanket and used a decorative stitch on the seams to hold the two pieces together.
Here's a better picture of the stitching. I washed the flannel before I cut the squares. It pilled pretty badly. I found out that I need to use fabric softener with flannel. I'm going to try and "shave" the blanket and rewash it. Hopefully, it will look a little better. I plan to make a couple more for the new little members of our family.
I've also been working a crocheted blanket. I'll post a picture soon. So how have you all been? What are your favorite projects right now?
