And then the weirdest thing happened. I got them from my stash, and I thought I'd just catch up with a few blogs before starting to sew. I went to my friend Yzo's blog over at Chez Roo and low and behold, she was using a different version of the very same fabric at exactly the same time.
And it gave me an idea. I just loved the idea of appliquing individual animals. So I thought I would add a couple to the solid patches of my blanket.
And I thought this sleeping blue frog on the back would be quite fun too.
Don't they look cute! Thank you so much Yzo for the inspiration.
Here is the finished blanket;

I think I love the porcupine most of all. Which one is your favourite?
