Making Tuesday: Summer Blanket

A continuation of Saturday's post, here is the final product, a summer blanket in all its glory! Made of the softest second hand men's shirts in blues and browns, some bright squares of new fabric were thrown in as well. The backing, a soft pale blue cotton were folded twice around the edges to give it a good border. The entire blanket was machine quilted in straight stitches, I am a fairly new quilter, past projects did not finish as well as this. The summer blanket is well received on cool evenings when the sun has set
