Here we go - the GONG XI Blanket!


This is a two-layered cotton patchwork with no padding in between.

It measures 50.5 inches by 74 inches.

The making:


The main design is made with wide strips.



 It's all in the cutting and arranging (to get the pattern I want).


Of course Ginger must approve.

He is the CEO of the PatioCat Patchwork Co.


The sashing is done in pretty pink.


My mum did the backing and top-stitching.


Will this be your Gong Xi blanket?

Happy Bidding!!

For RM150, you will be subsidising the neutering of a street dog or a street cat and two vaccinations. It goes a long way for the animals that you will be helping. In return for your kindness and generosity, you get a home-sewn blanket with our gratitude!

Yes this would make a nice AngPow gift on an auspicious Horse Year. Would have been nicer if only there were many horses as in blankie #23 with longevity turtles. Just the same it will make a gorgeously beautiful CNY gift for a loved one & it is will a steal if RM 388 sneaks in

Here's wishing one & all an early Gong Xi Fa Cai. N may tis Year of the Horse bring lots of happiness n good health to all . . . including our dear furry frens
