One almost done, one just begun
I think I'm almost done with my first log cabin blanket. If it gets much larger, I won't be able to lift it! The Plymouth Fantasy Naturale cotton is great to work with, but it's a bit bulky for a very large item. Still, my family likes it and my husband has already claimed it as his.
I couldn't resist making a start on my Moderne "Teen" Blanket for my daughter. The colors are pretty funky, but so is her room! She loves the way it looks, and I highly recommend the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece that I am using. It is lightweight enough, yet has a cozy feel.
Shirley, the log cabin is about 50 x 55 in. so far. Cindra, the teen moderne is made of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. I really love it.
I have a question....how's the seaming on the back of your LC blanket look? Is it a bit lumpy? I'm making one as a gift but the back is less than attractive, and I'm thinking of having it lined afterwards. I'm using the Mission Falls 1824 cotton...it has a nice texture.
