My blanket

After a tiring weekend with carnival for our village school, organized by 6 motivated moms (I have been one of them), I lay down ill on Monday. Strange illness whose main symptoms have been a hurting cotton head that didn't like the sunlight and couldn't think well and a stomach that couldn't decide if to feel sick or not. 
For two days I spend a lot of time on the sofa cuddled in my favorite blanket. I made it only for myself in 2010 and since I have to defend it, because everyone likes to use it.
The idea is clear: There is one side of night and one side of day. Houses in sunshine and in moonshine. The border is made from all leftover scraps. 
The backside is of soft white fleece. It hasn't been long enough so I added a row of squares from the houses fabrics.
I didn't do any quilting, because at that time I haven't been experienced with free motion quilting and also I wanted the blanket to stay soft. And it is soft and cozy and I still love it after 4 years of use. The final size is 215x155cm, so it's perfect to wrap in even a tall person :-)

A bientôt avec quelque chose nouvelle,
