I have made 5 crochet blankets to put in my family's christmas gifts . I have 3 more to show you before the weekend . I just have to weave some ends in .
They could be on the bed as a little extra tootsie warmer but I have made them to snuggle into when curled up on the sofa to use as a lap quilt .
This is my red christmas quilt for myself . I'm hand quilting it , I want it to be soft . I think you get that effect with hand quilting . I really do like the structured feel of machine quilting and I like doing it . I shall most likely do machine quilting on the border for extra strength .
