|Sweetie models the finished product|
And it stores neatly over the back of the chair also, due to its compact size.
blog post: 4x6 grid of 10" (25.4 cm) squares. I used one layer of Minky for the back, one layer of flannel for a filler, and flannel for the face. Sewed each block's sandwich together with a single X of stitching, and attached the blocks with 1/2" (1.3 cm) seams. Rag cuts were approximately 1" (2.5 cm) apart--but not because I measured while I was cutting them, just turned out that way by eyeball.
Ooh--shout out to glen of QuiltSwissy for the fabulous advice on de-fluffing and making the quilt safe for general house use. Many trips to the dryer, and frequent emptying of the lint trap, did the trick. Thanks for the blogging love, leaving a comment that did the trick.
It's a finished project, and for that I'm thankful. It gets almost daily use in our drafty house, and that makes me a happy grrl. And I get to show off (every sewist loves a show & tell, right?)
Linking up with Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, being hosted this week at Quokka Quilts. Go check out some other fab finishes!
