This is my first attempt at chenille and I will definitely make more! It is so soft and yummy. The hardest part is the time it takes, but it's all straight line sewing, no piecing! I was done the sewing of the diagonal lines across the quilt in two hours, it took about an hour to cut in between each stitching line with my trusty Olfa Chenille Cutter, and the binding took the normal time it takes to hand stitch. I rounded the corners of the blanket, so I had to use bias binding which I had never made. A quick search on you tube yields plenty of direction on cutting binding on the bias. It has a 100% cotton backing and binding, the chenille is made from three layers of flannel. I love the look and feel. Even though baby C is a summer baby, he's all set for the Fall and Winter when he needs some help staying warm. I used this tutorial for constructing the quilt...it was a great help!
I also made his big brother a dinosaur pillowcase. I don't have pictures, because I had everything wrapped up tightly before I remembered to take a few shots...so you'll have to imagine how cute big brother's dino case is...but trust me, it's purty cute!
