Our blanket day is Saturday April 26th from 9 to 3! If you can come for set up we will need help at 8am. We are Crittenton at 10918 Elm Ave, Kansas City MO, That means if you are joining us in the blanket challenge you have just a couple of weeks to finish your blanket! The fabric that needs to be in this blanket was handed out at the October blanket day. We have a really nice prize for the winner of the blanket challenge.
We will be making a blanket this time with a pattern called the exploding block.
You will need the following supplies:
36, 4 inch print blocks(don't have to all be the same)
36, 4 inch solid blocks(don't have to all be the same)
36, 5 inch print or different solid blocks(they don't have to all be the same)
4, 2 1/2 X width of fabric strips for a border
backing and batting for this blanket
...you will also need ruler, sharp point scissor( this one is important) a pen or pencil or some type of marking tool. You will also need your sewing machine, sewing supplies, an extension cord or power strip would be helpful.
As always we will also have our knitting and crochet group.We also had a huge donation of fleece so we will have fleece there for anyone who would like to come and make a few fleece blankets for us. Please come help us make some blankets, as usual we can't keep up with the demand.
