blanket stitching

I replaced the blank paper on my pinwall with this vintage blanket. That feels better. The red stripes are woven and worn and I find them to be so lovely. The stripes make a horizon line when lined up like this. A red thread horizon line. I'm not sure what to do next, but blanket stitch seems right.

Judy, I look at your blog all the time and seldom comment- shy- but the careful grading of these red bars fills me with aspiration, if you can say that. So nice to see them, thank you.

I have so many treasures from the same source, but no idea what to do with them yet!
Anticipation is a pleasure, so is sharing
