I did the blanket stitch the other way! What a revelation. I realized that if I put this light yellow piece on top of the blue, it would show through, so I decided to put it underneath and do the stitching onto the blue. I like how it looks kind of like a candle flame.
Here is the flower part of layer 1
And all of layer 1
And the back. There was a thread bobble with the bobbin thread, but it didn't affect the front, so I left it.
I hope you get to quilt today!
