I spent this weekend working on projects, and have several finished objects to show for it. Two of my projects were a baby quilt and a baby blanket for my soon-to-arrive nephew. All of the fabrics that I used are cotton flannel from Connecting Threads. I especially love the Yosemite fabric, which I used as the quilt top. I also couldn't pass on the blue and brown plaid for the baby blanket.
I also finished the border on a rug hooking project that I recently completed. I purchased this project as a kit from Designs in Wool on Etsy. I tried several different ways of finishing the edge before I settled on a method that I liked. I discovered this approach to edging while taking a look at the ever-inspiring Karen Kahle's blog. Her work is absolutely stunning, and this finishing technique is brilliant. Rather than using fabric strips to finish the edge on my project, I opted to use a handdyed silk noil yarn. Because this project is meant as a piece of decor and not a rug, I am not concerned about how the silk will hold up over time. I just love this little pumpkin!
