Sable's Blanket

Hi friends!
Missy's youngest son and his wife are having a girl so i get to do little girl things.
Her Dora blanket!
These are quick to work up and i used one of the stitches on my brother 6000.
It doesn't have a lot of good stitches but this one is a vine with leaves on both sides.
I bought this flannel with this in mind but we have had boys since then , I did make Olivia one before she was born just recently.
That Brother 6000 is bad to pull lots of thread up from the bobbin and mess up the stitch.
It's the one i bought me for Christmas last year. It had good reviews but it not as good as my big brother. Of course i gave 7 times as much money for it but i needed one to do zig zag to fix Tommy's work clothes.
It did it once while i was working on this.
I guess it would work for a boy but i just think girl when i see Dora.
Have a good one
Quilt Happy

It is so much fun to sew for kids. I think I have the same Brother you have...mine is CS6000i. I haven't used the decorative stitches on it because I love my Viking so much. The little machine is set up with dark thread just in case I have a seam that call for dark.
