Travel Blanket

My on-line course continues.

The first step was dying some fabric.

Three dyed fabrics to consider. I wanted to use the middle one
but the one on the left turned out to be better.
Sometimes you have to listen to what your fabric is telling you!
The next step was looking for fabric that would help me tell the story of my travels.

I am ready to layer the back, the flannel and the top together and baste it using the tailor's basting stitch.

Then comes the stitching. I am looking forward to that part. I bought some nice threads.

4 small hand-dyed silk spools, made in Romania (Valdani)
 and a gift from my friend Gabriella
of hand-dyed silk thread from Umbria
