The squares on my Fireside Afghan are finally all knit, and I have some visible progress to show off!
I’ve begun to sew the blocks together! After investigating a variety of techniques, I finally settled on one that pleased me. I have about half of the rows sewn together. The question of how to finish this project is beginning to loom overhead, though. I think I’d like to back it, and I’ve purchased a warm grey fleece blanket for that specific purpose. But how do I want to do that? I’ve seen a variety of pretty blankets that were bound like a traditional quilt, and others that had the backing whip stitched on so that it’s not visible from the front. Others have lovely rolled hems. I’m not sure what I want to do, but right now I’m looking at a million tutorials and weighing my options.
