My Project Linus project: ready to post

Today, I got almost everything done for my Project Linus project.

I finished work on the four corner squares:

I joined each of square to its intended corner:

and then I joined the border pieces, wove in and trimmed ends, and managed to get this photo shortly before sunset:

Tomorrow, I will have to take some final photos that document (in better light) the finished piece, and I will have to go over the rudimentary notes I made along the way and make certain that I can understand them well enough to write up a pattern that others could follow (if they so chose).

And then, it will be time to pack it up and send it off to Bloomington, Illinois, so that it can be included in this year’s Project Linus Conference 2013 Blanket Challenge.

I learn something from each project I make, and I can hardly wait to put what I learned to use in my 2013 North Carolina State Fair entry.

  1. As a Mother of a terminally ill child at one time, the blanket’s my son & daughter’s received meant more than some realize. The time that people put into making the blanket’s, at the time, may not have seemed like much to them, but to those of us who received them, it meant the world. My son only lived 9 months & 20 days, but I still have all 4 of my Project Linus blankets, a sweet reminder that someone who didn’t get a chance to meet my son, took the time to make a blanket to share with him. So, thank you, to all who participate in the Project Linus blanket project. You may not hear a thank you or be there to give the blanket to a child in person, but know, it is greatly appreciated and I consider it an honored to own a Project Linus blanket. God bless each and every one….

  2. Beautiful blanket. I especially love the corners where you have captured the characters’ personalities so well. Your work of heart will surely help brighten a child’s day.
