Three is the Magic Number


So that new three year old tries out her birthday quilt. Jumpworthy? I guess. Actually, she liked the Lightning Mcqueen blanket cousin Lauren made her much better than mine, but hey, I can deal. I had forgotten how much cloth wrangling it takes to get a larger quilt through a small sewing machine, but with that and some leaf raking, I have gotten some pretty good exercise lately. I lined the quilt with a bamboo fill, which was thinner than expected, but decent in warmth, and used the leftover fabric as binding. Yes, those are mitered corners with "invisible" slip stitching! Now, back to things of smaller proportion. Anyone need a baby blanket, or rather, a doll blanket???
