I can't believe it's been a week
since I've posted!
My summer is still in full swing
around here and time gets away
from me too fast.
I hope all of you are enjoying your
summer as much as I am.
Today I wanted to show you the project that I took along with me on my camping trip.
My project was inspired by a photo that
I saw on Pinterest....
using 5" squares that are sewn together and then adding crochet.
You know that I love to add crochet edgings on several of my fabric patterns
so when I saw the photo...I was inspired and started immediately!
I just kind of made up my blanket
as I went along but I have now
discovered that there is
by Corey@Little Miss Shabby and a
and it's a crochet along as well!
It's called the
Fusion Blanket Crochet Along.
Fabric/Crochet fused together = fun!!!
I love the fact that I have been able to use up even more of my precut leftovers from
Sew Cherry, Daisy Cottage and Millie's Closet.
I chose to use "I Love This Cotton" yarn in
68 Aqua that I bought at Hobby Lobby.
It's so soft and the color is yummy and goes with all of my fabrics...and is 100% cotton which is a big plus for me.
I like to work with natural fibers
as much as possible.
I have several squares completed so far...
they really work up fast.
I did a single crochet into each buttonhole stitch and then a double crochet into each single crochet and that's all!
*Take note that on the corners...I did 3 stitches instead of one:)
I love the scrappiness of my blanket...
I put some of the squares up on my
design wall together to see
how they will look when I crochet them together.
I will just use a single crochet stitch when joining them and I think I will leave the holes in the intersections...I like how it adds a lacy kind of look.
Of course I will make the final decision on that when I join them all together:)
I know that today is Tuesday...
and week 5 of
I don't have anything new to show you yet...but Jodi has some new blocks...so go over and see them!
All of the beautiful blocks and quilts that are showing up on the flickr group
are just amazing!!!
It's been so fun to see all of them
over the last 5 weeks:)
Next post...I will be showing you a sneak peek of my up coming fabric line.
Until then...have a quilty kind of day:)
