Wonderful Blankets to see today!

Good Afternoon to you all and thanks for visiting the 'SIBOL' Blog,

I would like to thank Kate today for the box received this morning. Inside were three gorgeous Blankets, SIBOL Butterflies and a lovely bag of Ribbon which will be very useful indeed.

This picture one is based on Louis Armstrong's lyrics to Wonderful World.  Kate tells me she didn't mean to make a whole Blanket but she had  a couple of squares that were too big a while ago and they were just being unloved.  All of a sudden inspiration hit, she thought of our Challenge and before she knew it she had made a whole Blanket. This certainly is a wonderful Blanket, you really have some fantastic ideas for Squares.  While we are talking about our Challenge I do still need Squares if anyone would like to help details are over on our Challenge Blog. Here's the link.

I love the World Square in particular you have captured it really well and of course clouds, sun, trees, flowers make this really interesting.  

We have two other Blankets to look at now and it's the good ol' Granny that has been used. 


The Black border is perfect Kate it really makes the Squares stand out.


It's nice to see the tiny Squares made in to a Blanket and I love how you have incorporated the two different sizes in the other one.

Kate you have worked really hard on all three Blankets, thank you so much for making and donating them. Also for the lovely SIBOL Butterflies and Ribbon too which will be terribly useful.



I know these Blankets are going to be loved. I will be very happy indeed to
pass them on to the Elderly. Thank you.

A Slide Show for you Kate.
