    now this is just too much work! hahaha very nice results though. I crochet but I never got the urge to make small blocks and join them together to make big blocks. I think I'm just too lazy! good for you, it's very nice.

It seems the new mothers like to toss these over baby in car seats; put on floor for baby, etc. I have been making the majority of them about 30x36 (1 yd fleece, cut in half), altho have made them all sizes. Found the blade thru Project Linus link and ordered them online. www.skipstitch.com/ There is another blade in the stores, but it would be good for only thin fabrics. There are 3 blades online for different thicknesses of fabric. These are fun and cute.
    Thank you for the link PKGranny, what a wonderful tool!.

    This is a good one to do while watching tv, or traveling, sitting on the porch/deck (when it warms us that is), or if you electricity. THANK YOU for sharing.

    Beautiful quilt! The crochet is so perfect.

    I believe the first row of stitching is done with needle and thread. Then you crochet off of those sts. Crochet hook doesn't ever pierce the fabric.
