I’ve been slowly spooking up the house this month and my favorite handmade thing this year is the quilted blanket I made from a single piece of cotton from Alexander Henry’s 2010 Halloween Collection. The fabric is just too beautiful and interesting to cut up, and so I decided to do long stitches around the images to quilt the piece, attaching it to the backing (made from luxurious orange and green cotton velveteen). The binding is a creamy white with small patches of black interspersed. It is a lap blanket/throw size, perfect for cuddling up on cool Autumn nights! Nothing beats the softness of velveteen.
