The French Fox blanket is done and on it’s way!

I’ve just finished the French Fox blanket and its on its way to its new owner. The blanket was backed in a natural color organic flannel and I tied the front and back of the blanket together with DMC embroidery floss. My Bernina sewing machine has some really pretty embroidery stitches and I used one to sew around the edges of the blanket in a deep magenta cotton thread. I’ve included a little French lavender sachet that I made in the package, it’s smells just delightful and will be a nice surprise for the recipient!

French Fox blanket all finished!

  8. I just love the fabric you have used on your quilt, so am upset to think it is unobtainable now.

    Your cat hair comment rang a bell with me, as I have two cats, and am quite often finding their hair gets in my photos.

  9. Just lovely, as I knew it would be :) And I adore the lavender sachet So classy and thoughtful, Jayne. I hope your client will be pleased.

  10. Gorgeous and love the sachet! Thanks so very much for joining us on Craft Schooling Sunday! I’m dreaming of making quilts though am so busy that I need all the inspiration I can get to dive in!

  11. I absolutely love this Jayne! Today everyone knows about quilting, however the art of comfort making has all but disappeared. Comforts were the staple in my grandmothers home where there was not enough time or room to do quilting. They ranged from the simplest of comforts, much like yours show here. to extra fancy comforts, with hens feet embroidery, (the actual patter was a crazy patch comfort) from decades of old Sunday dresses.
    Your work is just beautiful Jayne!! As Always! Also love that you use a Bernina the BEST sewing machine out there!!!

    • Hi Mitchell! Bernina is the best, have had mine for over 20 years :) Okay, I have never heard of a comfort, how neat! I never know what to call those “blankets” I make, I’ve got to do some research. Hope you are having a sunny and wonderful weekend!
