The Nitty Gritty: a Blanket or a Quilt?

HI there... m'lady friends & guys!!!

How exactly . . . is a quilt different from a blanket?

Well, I'd say that its like two blankets sewn together with padding in between (sandwich).  The stitching that keeps the padding in place creates a pattern that makes for an added dimension of " catch-you-breath eye candy"

The bquiltin shows thru the top and bottom of the sandwich quilt -- and when I longarm stitch, it is an inviting pattern matched by color, swirls, symbols and even a narrative stitched into the quilt!!!

PSsssss sorry -- missed cropping the pic below!

My Focus on Paper Piecing 2022

My easy reference is Paper Piecing.  More correctly it is FOUNDATION PAPER PIECING:  a method where patterns have been printed on paper for you the piece quilt blocks.  

Yes.. luv it.  You and I can actually sew on the paper and the fabric at the same time-- takes a few skillful times to rearrange you brain focus!!... this means that FPPfoundation paper piecing is a method that uses patterns printed on paper to piece quilt blocks. You actually sew on the paper and the fabric at the same time. Using this technique you can achieve more accurate and intricate quilt block patterns.
