The Blanket.

1st things 1st! Forgive the night time pictures, they are what they are.

I complained about this blanket on Twitter just about everyday that I worked on it. Honest. But, it's done now and I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out. However, tomorrow is judgement day. Tomorrow I will be taking it to the decorator. AHHH!

Ok, I was given a partially pieced top. The beige and everything inside of the beige was already done. I had to add the dark purple and the backing. The wrinkles in the suede would not come out... that will have to be dry cleaned or come out in time. I used my super steam iron and steamed it for a LONG time and they still wouldn't come out.



Here is the binding I did:

This is the center bit up close:
I chose this thread to pull in those center colors then did this ornamental flatlock stitch with my new serger to connect the dark purple pieces to the rest of the blanket. What do you think? Look good? Should I be nervous?
