Here's my third finished mini-quilt. I just taught myself the blanket stitch. It's a bit wonky it spots and I discovered the hard way that you can't really turn a blanket stitch around corners; I think it's best to knot it off and start a new row of stitches. If anyone out there can successfully turn a hard corner with blanket stitch, I'd love to email with you about how you do it!
These quiltlets are going in a board book; I think the theme of the book will tie in with a new stamp I just bought. It's a favorite quote from Helen Keller: "Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all."
