motif sampler blanket by andricongirl motif sampler blanket by andricongirl
made in acrylic yarn (Patons magnum) as a practice of reading patterns, and to see how they looked worked up.
they then sat around for a year doing nothing ..

until eventually i decided to edge them all in white (which is a slightly softer acrylic yarn, homemaker yarn from kmart :) , sew them together and filled in the gaps, to become a crazy motif sampler blanket.

it took forever to weave in all the ends!

it should be perfect as a throw on the couch, specially at the moment on these chilly winter nights while watching telly

question(s)

~ is it possible to see some more detailed shots? and
~ do you have the patterns still?

i showed this to my mom.... and now she wants me to print off the image-- but i know it wont print nicely... she also believes that because of this image, she should upload her stuff online... @.o

there is no pattern, I just made a whole bunch of motifs from a few books, edged them in white to either a square or round shape then stitched them together .

not sure if i have any closer up shots of the blanket or motifs. I have backed up all my old photos some where
if i spot any i may post them up

Great idea to do this in a non-traditional square/rect shaped blanket. Makes it truly something different and it looks wonderful.

I like how the total randomness of the motifs are tied together by a color scheme. Very cool.
