Project Linus Blankets

This bright and cheerful Log Cabin was done using a Layer Cake for the color parts called "Amelia."  Hope it will cheer up some child in the hospital.
This is a fleece blanket that is single crocheted around the edge.  I found a neat rotary cutter blade that cuts little slits around the edge of the fleece after you square it up.  Then you can easily crochet around the edges. Wish I could think up some of these good ideas!!!
I also did a navy blue fleece one, but failed to get a picture.  I crocheted around the edge of that with white yarn also.

My machine is at the shop getting it's yearly cleaning and check-up.  So I decided instead of getting out another machine, I would make up some kits and clean out fabric a bit.  I've been working for three days now and haven't even made much of a dent in the kit fabrics.  I'm cutting out the patterns as I go, so all I'll have to do is sit down and sew, so that is slowing me down, I guess.  But sure will nice to have them done!  Seeing some fabrics I haven't seen for a long, long time and finding some surprises, too!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!!
