I washed the blanket. The blocks themselves were fine, but there are a lot of holes in between where I sewed the blocks together. I must not have weaved the ends in tight enough. The blocks themselves were fine though. At first glance I wanted to cry with all the holes I saw, but after a more careful inspection it isn't as bad.
I sewed those things together tight too. I'm surprised there are so many holes :( I'm going to patch it up and hope that it will stay for when she washes it again. I washed and dried it on what the label said for the yarn.
