I believe the largest items I made were handbags and art journals, nothing that required to much sewing and or (ghasp) Cutting! I am still a little scared of cutting and piecing, so to make a quilt styled blanket would have been 100 percent out of my equation!
Fast forward to a trip to Beverly's in my hometown, where I came across a blanket on display with a set of directions right next to it. I was immediately drawn to the colors and the touch of it. It was made from flannel cotton and I noticed that the rag edging looked like it could be very forgiving to the unsteady hand that may or may not know how to cut a straight line!
I told my girlfriend, LOOK, I think we can do this! She was as equally as excited and we started bolting around the store to buy our 5 choices of colors to make the blanket.
I must say, this was super duper easy and it really did give me a lot of bang for both my buck and my ego!
Here is what I ended up with!

It was so much fun, I want to make a handbag with this technique, as well as mixing it up with some mixed media elements! (stay tuned)
Here is the video to show you how to make it. You can also go to Beverly's website and get the directions from there too!
Have fun my friends! (wow, it feels good to blog again!) Orale!
