Dad's Blankie, Finished

I finished the blankie for my dad, and it's all ready to pack up and ship with other b'day and Christmas gifts. Since it has fleece backing and no batting, it turned out soft and drapey. The satin binding didn't turn out quite as expected; I was a few inches short of enough to attach it blanket style because of the width of the mitered corners. So I attached it quilt-binding style, and just barely had enough with only a couple inches to spare. It's narrower and thicker than planned but it still provides texture contrast at the edges.

Check this one off the list of have-to sewing. Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts.

And, no, I didn't get the pants hemmed yet....


  1. Haha, I wouldn't have the pants hemmed yet, either. Congratulations on the finish and I hope you can sew something fun soon. :)

  2. Congrats on getting one thing off your to do list.

  3. Nice work and in plenty of time for Christmas, well done!

  4. This looks great! I'm sure he'll appreciate it.
