So here's the little blanket, I hand stitched the oblongs together, put on the fleecy back like the other two as had enough left over and put some cute lavender colour binding round the edge which I machined and then machined round all the oblongs. I'm no quilter, I need lots of practice yet and my designs so far are as simple as I can get them especially with a tight deadline as my niece will get it this weekend as it was her birthday yesterday but I'm pretty happy with it.

As the caption states, there were a few 'puck ups' on the fleece backing, if you're wondering why I've suddenly gone for very descriptive captions on my photos, it's because my good friend Giles pointed out that for the visually impaired it's hard to know what the picture shows if all the reader could tell him was the jpeg number! Take a look at his blog on his adventures as a visually impaired quilter, I can highly recommend it!
I'm off to finish another patchwork cushion. Happy Sewing!
