Another top!

Linus top

 I don't know why but this is my least favorite Linus top I have made so far. I think it was the fabric choices. Since I didn't pick the fabric I will say that is the reason. :^)

For those who wondered what I was talking about on the strip pieced blanket, here is how I covered the seam allowances on the back.
Take a 2.5" strip and fold in half and press with iron.

Unfold and bring raw edges to the center fold line

Do the same with the other raw edge and press

I laid the strips along the pressed open seam allowances on the back of the blanket and stitched them down. The first ones I stitched  with four stitching lines but soon thought that was over kill and the last ones I just stitched with two lines.
