Baby blanket for a boy. I managed to finish the blanket for the baby shower. The design is from Amazing Designs and is nearest to the theme of the mother - scruffy bears - which I could find and which I liked. It stitched out for almost 2 hours and had various layers and the end result was just perfect. Will definitely try some of the others I also bought to make use of the special price.

You did a fantastic job. He is such a cutie. I'm sure the new mom will love it. I like to use a fine bridal tulle under fluffy or napped fabrics but I normally don't do a 2 hour stitch out on them either. It can be a bit more fussy than WSS but it stays there permanently and doesn't wash away.

The design was actually from the Bears Hug Collection 1 which is 5x7 designs but I love the Playtime collection too. Most of the Playtime collection is smaller designs 4x4. I've already got 10 of the ones I liked most in my wishlist. (I'm a bit of an opportunist aren't I - lol)

This turned out fantastic!! What kind of stabilizer did you use to get such perfect results?

The blanket is a fluffy polar fleece and I've only used medium tear away at the back and wss on top. I did not hoop the blanket but sprayed with temp adhesive and done with a basting stitch. There were very little jump stitches and almost no cutting of thread.

Thank you for the information. I would like to try stitching on polar fleece. I'm still afraid of destroying anything "good" so have been doing quilt blocks and such.

Thank you, you are so right, my husband and I have discussed it this afternoon and the end conclusion was - be prepared to pay a little more and take a bit of more time - it is worth it.
