Woo hoo, I got project #3 for the weekend behind me today. This is what I started with: a thin blanket with 28 cross stitched squares.
Here's a detail of one of the squares. I for Iguana:
I added some cotton batting and secured it in place with french knots between each square. Then I backed it with satin and mitred the edge.
I'm really happy with how it came out. And the best part is it's DONE!
