    Self Binding blanket

    One side messed up due to the joys of using minky, but overall, it turned out fairly well for my first attempt.

    And yes Mr. Eko approves it. lol

    Very nice. Love your quilt and Mr. Eko.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thanks! He does tend to blend in well in several places. lol I think after the wash, the blanket seem to look better; it is still drying so I will check it soon.

    Very cute, I love minkee, but it's not the easiest thing to sew on!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Not it is not. I have used it for several blankets and always wonder why when I get to sewing. lol But once the blanket is done, I am glad I used it. lol

    Yes it is. Since one corner messed up, I am not giving it to my cousin. So the cats have a new blanket and they love it.

    So glad to inspire you! Aren't they fun! I made another one this morning because my Mom wanted one at her house since my Little Bit and cousns visit often and like blankets to play with.
