Indian Blanket Top

After many weeks on my wall, my “Indian Blanket” top is finally complete.  I like it, but this design has never really put off an "Indian" vibe for me.  It doesn't matter, but it is interesting that I completely miss the feel of the design, but enjoy it nonetheless...



I played with the idea of making it a few rows longer to use as another quilt on my daughter’s bed.  When I mentioned this to her she reminded me that she had “like 5 quilts to choose from already” and didn’t really need another.  She said it nicely, not all snotty, but still, message received.  Actually, it's kind of a good thing as I was really struggling to find fabric for the last few rows that worked for me.  I did cut a few different ideas, put them up and ultimately reject them.  My trouble in this area was a big part of the reason it took so long to complete this top.  So, in that way, it is best that it doesn't need to be any longer. 





To finish this top I’m going to order some flannel for the back, maybe try out a new free motion quilting design, and use it on the couch in the evenings.
