I'm kind of obsessed with charm packs and baby quilts that don't look very baby-ish. My customer picked out the charm pack and left the rest up to me. I know the middle turned out a little lopsided (oops!) which I partially attribute to the backing. There is no batting, just the minky back. This blanket is SO soft. It turned out a decent sized 38" x 42." I used the zig zag stich for the first time and love the effect it had. It took me about 5 hrs to make, since the majority of the cutting and ironing is already done for me! Thoughts? Critiques?
