I also have the problem of having too many blankets lying around the house. This one has two matching throw pillows (that I use in the living room) and I really like it, but the batting got all bunchy and clumpy in the washer/dryer, so it was kinda ruined....Two problems = one solution: FABRIC BOX!
I didn't measure my pieces very well, so it's not perfect; maybe a little more floppy than it should be, but I like it. ...and perfect for Magazines!
I totally want to make more. Now, what else can I find around my house to put into a fabric box???
