My first shared project!  Grin A dear friend is having her first baby in mid-February so I couldn't resist stitching this sheet and blanket set for her baby's cot. The pattern is from a book called "Embroidery: Contemporary and Traditional Crafts" with designs by Penny Black, India Flint and Vicki Porter.

The animals were very simple to stitch - mostly stem stitch with a little bit of backstitch. I think the whole project took about 15 hours. The sheet is white cotton poplin and all the animals were stitched with perle 5 cotton. The animals were stitched to a band and attached to the sheet in the same way bias binding is attached.

The blanket is yellow flannette, also stitched with perle 5 cotton. The animals were stitched straight on the blanket, then a backing piece was sewn on wrong-sides-together. The piece was turned right-way-out then quilted with running stitch around the edges and in the middle. This was hardest part for me - I have never quilted before and I find sewing straight lines hard  Cheesy

My favourite part of the finished set were the chickens on the blanket :-)

Thanks for looking! Questions, advice and comments welcome.

Cute! I also like the chickens, but the tiger stripes are my favourite I think.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
