I have all my blanket stitch done and I have a few tips for you and an option on the pocket.
Well, okay not a tip but a stroke of luck and perhaps a titch of genius. I didn't like the placement of the eyes on the penguin.....they seemed so far apart and there was a titch of an opening around the nose..............
When it came time to do the stitching around the pocket I did some thinking ahead of time. I wanted the pocket to appear as if you could open it and put something in, but wanted it stitched in place too.
I opted to do the blanket stitch around the three sides
I tie my ends off at the back and the block kept slipping and sliding down onto my knee. I decided to drop the foot on my sewing machine and it held the block in place until I was done.
That's it! My block is done for this month.
Now onto my blocks from Quiltmaker.
