That said, I wanted to make this blanket for my nephew and I thought it would be so simple. It was just one panel of fabric, that I would sew onto a length of brown fabric, bring the brown over the top to bind, and then quilt it somehow. I wasn't too worried about the details of the quilting part, in my typical gung-ho fashion I just went ahead and did the part I knew how to do and thought I'd figure out the other details later. By which I mean I'd show it to someone who knows how to do these kinds of things and have them give me suggestions for how to finish it.
So that's what I did. I sewed it up all nice and tight and then just had to figure out a way to quilt it. The top was mostly green and blue with jungle animals in the middle, and the bottom was brown. I didn't want to quilt it in squares or anything like that because of the animals, and I am not confident about free hand quilting on my machine. And that's how I ended up quilting it with invisible thread by hand. And that's why when it was done it was so hard to give it away. Have you ever made something by hand that you are ridiculously happy with, and then had to give it away?
If you don't know I love you by now little sis, there's nothing more I can do for you.
The animals on that blanket match the animals on this blanket. Am I too much, or am I too much?
