This is the front of the blanket. Isn’t it a a happy Jack O’ lantern?
This is the back of the blanket. I left a border of the crochet piece showing. I sewed up and down and side to side also so that the fleece would not be sliding around. It gives it a nice quilted look and feel. My daughter was pleased with the results and so was I.
When I walked in carrying it, Martin was right there grabbing at it. I guess it meets his approval too. 🙂
I know it was suppose to be his birthday present, but Grandma couldn’t wait 3 more weeks to give it to him. I gave it to him the day after I finished it.
Here are the stats for the blanket.
I used Bella Coco’s Granny Square video because I couldn’t figure out the written directions in the Double Diamond pattern. Yes, visuals help me a lot.
