In the three albums given by Jimmy and Angela, two contains the same samples while one is totally different. Hence, I can only find, at most, two pieces of the same cloth (if taken from the duplicate albums). So, it isn't easy to mix and match.

For this piece, I picked out the samples done in pastel watercolour shades and mixed them with 4 floral pieces.


The backing cloth is used as sashing.


I figured a brown outer frame should look quite nice?

Ginger gives his OK.


Now, to cut the backing cloth.


The backing is done by my mum with the light beige cloth contributed by Agnes Cheong.


This blanket measures 51.5 inches by 80 inches.

Since curtain samples were used, it is thicker than our normal blankets. It can be used as a bedspread or a cover.

Happy bidding and thank you very much for your support.
