So last month I finished a new design. It was a custom order blanket for a queen size bed. I’d never tackled a blanket that big, but I am always excited to make new designs. It was a definite learning experience (not only due to size) because they requested the back be cotton, which meant I had to be a big girl quilter and use batting – something I normally avoid by doing the flannel backing. I also used a new technique for binding that was really easy and I liked. So why don’t I apply all these new things to all my blankets? Because I’m really uncomfortable with the finishing top stitch that sews all the layers together. I really need a bigger, stronger machine to do it right.
Because the top stitch is still scarey to me, I did a minimal stitch around megaman’s body and called it done.
