Analisa’s Blankets Done and Delivered!

My first quilting adventure!  I introduced these blankets to you earlier this month and I finally have them to show to you!  This was such a great project for me to take on.  I love getting through projects quickly and this one really put me in my place!

I’ll tell you what I learned immediately.  There is NO possible way to speed cut quilt squares!  Making perfect 12″ by 12″ squares in the middle of a t-shirt/sweatshirt is incredibly nerve racking, especially when you can’t go back out and buy more fabric if/when you mess up.  Every measurement and cut have to be exact or else nothing will line up properly.

I spent an additional day laying out all the pieces and re-laying out all the pieces so that all the colors would be balanced and all of the activities were represented on each blanket.  I mean we all know how we fought as kids, if my sister got a new Easter dress, then I had to get a new Easter dress, if my brother got to get ice cream then I wanted ice cream too (actually I always wanted ice-cream, but that was always a sure win =)

So I separated them by color first then by activity.  Once they were balanced I got to pinning them all together and with the magic of a sewing machine and the help of the incredible Jackie!  Out came these two sweet blankets!

Can’t wait to show you what I have in the works right now!

As always enjoy!  And I’ll be back soon! =)

*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.

As always you can e-mail me at or leave a comment.
