I joined Little Miss Shabby's Flickr group to document my progress on my Fusion Blanket Crochet Along Blanket (I like it so much that I used blanket twice!) I got inspired by Sewing Daisies tutorial of her Kaffe Fusion Blanket. I chose 2 floral charm packs, both by Moda, that had similar shades of red, blue, and cream.
I'm making my blanket to measure 6 squares by 7 squares totaling 84 charm squares. With the added crochet edging, each block should finish at 6 inches squared and that should make up to be a nice sized 36" x 42" lap quilt. I used up all of my charm squares with the exception of 3 oddball shades of blue that don't mesh well with the rest of the colors in either collection.
Here is my first practice block. I used a neutral grey thread to top stitch my charm block. I used red cotton crochet thread for my blanket stitch.
Little Miss Shabby provides a great tutorial on getting started with sewing the charm squares and adding the blanket stitching.
