Loose Threads: Project Linus Blankets

Project Linus Blankets

Some of my handwork lately has been crocheting these edges around fleece to donate to Project Linus. Yesterday our local coordinator e-mailed that one of our local hospital needs children's blankets, so I'll drop these off this morning.
This one will go to Project Linus also. I made this from a bundle of Minkie that I bought a few years back at a quilt show. If you are a quilter you know about those things you see at quilt shows that are screaming "pick me up and buy me". This blanket has been around, too. I pieced the top and donated it and the backing a year ago at the Make A Blanket Day where we all get together and sew Project Linus labels on the backs of donation quilts. One of our other coordinators took this top home to finish. At the next get together she brought it back unfinished. So I brought it back home and kept it another 6 months before I finished it.

I hope you take some time to do some stitching today!!!

I love the crocheted edging that you put around your fleece blankets! I really need to get one of the skip stitch blades, so I can do this too. It would be a great way to use up odds and ends of leftover yarn!
