Hints and Tips
This pattern is so easy to follow and it makes a wonderful, light-weight blankie that was great for someone like me, who has access to a sewing machine, but I didn’t have lots of time (before my bubs was born) to learn proper quilting.
I cut all of these squares of fabric by hand – for the next project I’m going to invest in a rotary cutter!
The calico and the different textures of the OOP Heather Ross fabrics make this big star blankie a tactile delight!
