Tropical Joy

 This is not your grandmother's chenille blanket.  There is a great tutorial at Aesthetic Nest.  Here are some pictures of the process.
 After several hours and a spool and a half of thread I finally had all my lines sewn. 
 Here you can see the channels being cut.  I think is looks like rows of crops,
 Or waves in the sea.
 The above picture is what I had finished when it was time to get the big girl from school.
 The binding is done.  Now it needs to be washed.
 After being washed and dried it looks like rows of rainbow sherbet.
It was fun, easy and time consuming to make, but I will definitely be making another one.
