Sewing Reveal: Hand Cut Chenille Blanket for Baby Boy Reid

I can't get enough of these hand cut chenille baby blankets! This is the third one I've made and every time I gift one away, I think I need to make one to keep for myself.

This is the first blanket I've made for a boy, this time I went with a geometric patterned fabric.  Have to say, it was pretty awesome to not have to mark the rows out for stitching and just use the fabric itself as my guide.  My lines were super straight this time!

And I actually made my own bias tape binding this go round too! Whoot whoot!

I used the same red fabric for the binding as I used as the "backer" fabric that I place behind my cut chenille rows (but I leave it un-cut, so you can see hints of red peeking through).

More details about how I add and use the extra "backing" fabric are found on my previous chenille baby blanket.

Red binding & "backer" cloth is cotton broadcloth.
The quilt top is cotton quilter's fabric.  
The blue, white, baby blue and teal are flannels.

The instructions I used are based on the wonderful tutorial found over at Aesthetic Nest.
