Best decision ever!

Well, maybe not EVER.
I decided to drop my Christmas blanket off to my favorite long arm quilter on Friday.
Two short hours later she called me back and said it was done!
I told her that I wanted minimal stitching so that it would keep it's loftiness.
Because of that she squeezed me in.
Icing on the cake....she only charged me $20!
I mean, this is a twin sized blanket.
So so so worth it!

I love these sheets from Garnet Hill!
You can buy them individually rather than in a set.
Which is nice if you want 2 different fabrics.
I decided that it needed a really thick binding so I cut 4" strips.
Then I sewed with a 1/2" inseam.
My kids are dying...DYING to get their hands on it!


  1. this is such a cute idea and I am already planning for next year to do this for my grandkids. I just don't have enough hours in the day to do it this year.

  2. so so cute and what a great deal! $20!!! awesome!

  3. That totally rocks. I still need to find a good long arm quilter near me. I have been procrastinating it but I am running out of time!

  4. looks great - and done before thanksgiving! what a great finished project.

  5. It's super cute Lu! Warm and snuggly.

  6. You can't beat that, can you? Looks so cute and cozy!
