When I was little, my aunt made a blanket that my sister and I called the “cottage cheese” blanket. It was lumpy all over and I think it had a “Mary had a little lamb” theme. I recently asked my mom about it. She said it was likely hand quilted and cross-stitched but has been gone for a long time. It was passed down between my 5 siblings and myself.
I really loved the texture of that blanket. I also loved its whiteness and that white quilty-ness is the image I associate with quilting. I can’t wait to make a white quilted blanket of my own.
Earlier this spring I came across twiddletails’ website and immediately was drawn to her version of the cottage cheese blanket. I even wrote to her and asked her how it was done – it was quilted. Surprise surprise. I told you I’m a beginner! That’s pretty much when I decided I was going to learn to quilt. Here is Anina’s version of the cottage cheese blanket. I hope she doesn’t mind that I’m linking to her Spring Fling Quilt Pattern.
Also, Anina from twiddletails is having a giveaway! I love the giveaways. She is holding a drawing for a selection of Wild Thyme fabrics. The drawing ends at midnight on 12/17. I hope I win!
