I usually go with light, soft colors, so this was a stretch for me. I do think it was cute once I was done. This blanket goes to a cute little grandson, of a friend of mine. She actually gave me a lot of her strips to make this basketweave.
Here's the basketweave from Bonnie's Quiltville.com. I liked the blue so much, so I started a green one of the same print.
I love finishes. This one was easy to quilt, but I kept getting lost and wondering around the quilt. I don't think anyone will notice.
