Hi Cuties, Now you see what I made with the lamb. Two more lambs and 2 flowers on this baby blanket. I had the squares altogether waiting to be quilted, but thought it needed 'something' else.

When I saw Adorable Applique had the lamb for free last Wednesday, I knew just what to use it on. So I ripped out a row and replaced it with this strip of gray and stitched the appliques.
My first time using Minky on the back. Although I did quilt it, I won't call it a quilt, because I used no batting. It's more like a blanket to drag around and drag the little one would have to do, because surprisingly it's heavy.
I stitched around the appliques.Then a stipple/free motion quilted on the gray and you can see in the last picture, my gray thread came onto the pink back in a couple places where I started. I quilted in the squares a crosshatch, skipping a block in between each row of stitching. I didn't think it needed cross hatch to be any closer. I didn't use a ruler as you may can tell, just stitched from one corner sq, to the other.
I love how it turned out and hope, whoever gets it for their little one, loves it as well. Thank you Adorable Applique for Wednesday's freebie!

Stay home (and embroidery!)
Stay well ( distant socializing to grocery or pharmacy)
Stay alive ( so we can all gather on Cute!)-Toogie

That is so very cute. It does not need batting it will be warm and cuddley just as is. I would have ripped a row out too, the lamb and flowers makes it extra special.

Thanks and I can't imagine how much heavier it would be with batting!

Thanks Laura, Minky makes such a mess. I keep the vacuum cleaner right by my work. I vacuum the cutting mat, the ITH when I trim, etc. but it is so soft....

by peafarm 24 Apr 2020

This is so adorable--I have used Minky several times and easier than a person would think stitching on it. Mostly embroidery on squares and turned into baby blocks for family presents and for Community Baby Shower gifts. Yes, as you say, it can get heavy and you want it to stay soft and cuddly not stiff from adding batting. You did an excellent job and nope didn't see any gray stitches on pink you were talking about.

It's in the last picture I think it shows more when the stitches tie off. Thanks for looking.

Perfect place for that lamb. I just love the material. Minky will make it such a cuddly cover. Great job

I was undecided to make a blanket or a quilt. I had batting and backing fabric in the gray dots for a quilt. However, I had never made a large blanket with Minky, just the Taggies. Surprisingly, it was easy to work with. Thanks for commenting AGAIN-lol

The addition of the embroidery is perfect. Such a beautiful blanket.

Mops my squares came from my dear old aunt. Poor lady, the so called squares were anything but square. I think she would be happy to see what I made with them, but never knowing I had to re-cut all of them.

I love to see Miss Veronika's designs posted in projects. It looks adorable and you did a great job in all of it!

mops by mops 24 Apr 2020

I could not agree more. Projects looks like an endless list of ads for other sites and not a place to be inspired on using Cute designs.

toogie by toogie edited 24 Apr 2020

Thanks, I tried using Cute designs in most of my bus gift projects one time. I had fun making the same thing, but each had a different look, because of the designs. There really are some Cute designs! I need one just this cute for a boy!

Adorable Applique has some great soccer or hockey playing bears. And some astronaut bears and dogs playing baseball that would be great for an young boy. There are boys playing soccer (or football if you're "from across the pond"). There's a jeep and cars and a whole fleet of boats. There are out of this world UFO's and robots...

Here on cute, there's a set of a boy fishing,
