The other one was trying hard to be a quilt but officially I think it was a 'patchwork blanket' because it just had polarfleece on the back.
This one is the real deal and I think I'm officially addicted. I never understood the whole quilting thing but I have fallen in love with the sound of my sewing machine going smoothly through so many layers and turning scraps of fabric into something warm and useful. We need one for every room in the house (and there's a high probability each of them will contain some ikea hippos).
I don't quite understand why the bias binding needs to be hand sewn on???? Who has time for that? And why bother? I used my machine and it looks just fine.
This one is for a newly hatched baby boy.
