Yes the center is fleece
(the friends are doing cowboy/western theme and the fleece is covered with pictures of boots, and rope, and saddle and horses. Very cute!)
I saw a swatch at Hobby Lobby in the yarn aisles. It was a 5in square of fleece with really pretty knitted edging about 2.5 wide.
My husband and I are designing the blanket together. We found a beautiful "Homespun" yarn that incorporates the colors very nicely. I just want to knit a trim on the edges of the fleece blanket. It didn't look very hard. But I would like to get a pattern for it.
Thaks for helping me!
