Fairy Blankets


fairy-blankets-2

This week I finished making two matching flannel fairy blankets.  Angela in the UK contacted me, wondering if I could make her a matching pair of flannel blankets using a fairy print.  , I did a checkerboard design with a coordinating solid lavender flannel since I only had one yard of the fairy print. I used a pretty rosy floral for the backing.  I then did a machine scallop stitch around the edge.

I made these cute quilts by cutting the fairy fabric and lavender fabric into fat quarters and then cutting them into quarters  again.  I then sewed 4 pieces (2 fairy, 2 lavender) together to make a block.  After that I sewed all four blocks together.

Notice how I did a collapsible seam on all of my corners so the fabric would lay as flat as possible with no bulky bumps in the blanket.

I just love how these blankets turned out!
