Reese's Blanket.





I attempted to make Reese (my niece) a quilt for Christmas.  I found the cutest fabric and I was so excited.
I don't know why I torture myself, trying to be crafty. I just don't have it in me.  My squares were crooked again, and I used a ruler and everything this time.  And I spend an hour trying to pair up the squares so that none of the colors would touch...low and behold right in the middle of the quilt are three rows of matching squares, arg!
Anyway, I finished it, and even though I was frustrated most of the time, I had fun making it.  I hope little Reesey likes it.

I think it is GORGEOUS!!!

And the best part about little 'mistakes' in a blanket - It is truly one of a kind. Completely unique. And one that her Aunt April made, I bet she will LOVE IT!!!

If you ever get around here we'll have to spend some time on cutting strips and squares - I can get mine pretty straight :)

I think it is beautiful. She will treasure it because her Auntie April made it for her and won't care if some of the same color squares are next to each other.
Love you Aunt Pam

She does love her quilt. It is on her bed right now, along with other blankets because it is so freaking cold here! But she loves it and so do I!
