I got a bit bored making hats so decided to take a break and do something else for a while. I found some gorgeous blue, yellow, white, and aqua baby yarn and decided it would make a beautiful baby blanket. I decided it was time to learn a new crochet stitch…having only known single crochet up to that point. So I watched some YouTube videos and learned how to do the half double stitch. This baby blanket/afghan is done totally in half double crochet. There is no pattern…just half double crochet and variegated yarn.
Finally, at long last, the blue butterfly quilt is finished! I decided to quilt it with a bright pink all over stipple design. I backed it in a blue print and used the same blue print for the binding. The binding is machine stitched with a decorative stitch.
