Part 1 Of My First Commission is Complete




After seeing a blanket I'd made for my mom, my dad(who NEVER asks me to make him something), has commissioned me to make him a blanket. His parameters were: Blue and Gray(he's a Civil War buff), and he wants the names of his favorite battles embroidered on it. So I'm using this pattern but I've added an extra set of nine patches because the blanket as is is too short for my dad. I'm planning to add a large off white border for the embroidery, which will be done in cross stitch, but I thought I would show off my handiwork so far. 345 3" squares stitched into 23 strips.

My goal is to have the whole thing finished by Thanksgiving so I don't have it hanging over my head on top of Christmas shopping.
