Elena's Blankie

This week's theme in Crafting with the Stars/on the Sidelines was Fabric. Yay!! I was planning this project even before I knew the theme, so it worked out perfectly for me :) It is my first blanket, and was an awesome/easy one to start with. Here's where I found the tutorial. I had to alter it a bit, because I only had 5 fabrics that I wanted to use, not 7 and mine is a tad (one or two panels) shorter than theirs. Its the perfect size though, for on the floor, and when Elena is big enough for the toddler bed. I tried it out on her sisters bed, and it is exactly the right size.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. My other two kids are now a little jealous that they didn't get one, so I am now on the prowl for some good fabrics for theirs...maybe it'll be Christmas presents. :)
And I tried mitered corners, they need alot  a little work, but for the first time doing them, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

And that is my submission, please go vote here at Northeast of Eden. Good luck to me, because there has been some insanely awesome projects coming out of people.


  1. Ok that tree fabric is too cute! Love it!

  2. That's for posting the tutorial. I love this quilt. I'm thinking of making it reversible.

  3. I LOVE the fabrics, they're awesome :)
    When you make yours Sharon, you should send me a link so that I can see your finished product! It was a great blanket to make- came together fairly quickly.

  4. Oh this is gorgeous!! I would LOVE it if you would link this up at my turquoise lovin' party going on right now!!

  5. Wow! Beautiful job! What type of fabric did you use?
