    What kind of thread do you do the blanket stitch with???
    Is this regular embroidery thread…and use 12 strands???
    or 4 strands? Thanks ♥♥♥

  2. Mary says:

    Same question….what thread are you using for the blanket stitch?

    • Corey says:

      I am using crochet thread. You could also use 8 wt. perle cotton–that’s what I used on my practice block.

    I had some fat quarters of nice quality flannel & have decided to do my blanket with them! I did one sample square & decided my yarn was too thick so I need to go back for something different. blanket stitching is going well though, I’m doing mine with crochet thread.

  4. Great way to get us started, Corey! Thanks.

  5. Carrie P. says:

    I am really wanting to do this blanket. I know very little crochet so I am wondering if I will be able to follow along?

  6. Sherry says:

    I have just started cutting the blocks from a layer cake in Etchings fabric. I hope to get a good start on machine stitching the blocks later today and crochet the blanket stitch in the evenings.

  7. Denise says:

    I’m confused on how you get the holes into the fabric with the blanket stitch. Is this done with the large needle like sewing/embroidery or are they pre-done?
    Thank you!

  8. wendiq says:

    Guess I’m dense, but…..did you use TWO strands of the perle cotton thread?

  9. wendiq says:

    One more question……don’t these squares need a filler and also, don’t they need to be stitched cross wise or in some way to stabilize them?

    • Jody says:

      The pattern being use doesn’t have a filler, but if you’d like to change it up and use a filler than yes, you’d need to “quilt” the block.

  10. De Hunold says:

    I wonder how the squares would hold up if the edges were served? Serging would certainly save lots of sewing time, turning and pressing.

  11. Did Cindy put up Part 2 of the tutorial? I can’t find it on her blog?? Thanks… can’t wait to get started on my own.

    I heard about this on “The quilting Pot” podcast. It sounds like fun and a great way to use my many scraps. Can’t wait to get started

    I didn’t see any batting with this blanket. Can put batting between the top and bottom of the squares?

    I was thinking maybe put batting on top (or on the bottom) of the squares, then make your sandwich, with right sides together.

    Do your 1/4 inch seam, and turn right side out. Then follow the above directions as written.

    Do you think that would work? I just thought it wouldn’t be very warm without the batting . . .

  17. Susanne Constantino says:

    Regarding my first post …. Maybe the batting should be slightly smaller than the material, about 1/2 inch on each side?

    Thank you . . .

    I just recently found this pattern and just love it. What type of yarn would you recommend? Something with stretch or a cotton?
    Thanks!!
