Star Baby Blanket

I also found this blanket when I was cleaning out the storage. This blanket took me hours to make! I worked on it for about 2 months, and never thought I'd see the day when I finally finished piecing this quilt together. Each block has 26 pieces, and I did a total of 12 blocks on this quilt. Hence the reason it took me so long. That's a total of 312 pieces, which is a lot for a baby blanket. Also, I hand-stitched it which was a lot of work, and my first attempt and hand-stitching too. I really enjoyed making this, and this blanket is a masterpiece which I will keep for the rest of my life.

Here is a look at some of the hand-stitch detail.

I'm not sure if anybody would be interested in this pattern, but if you are leave a comment. I want to sell my pattern, but I'm not sure if it's something people are interested in or not. Let me know.
