Baby Ribbon Blankie

I was inspired by Vicki over at Quilter's Mission  a few weeks ago when she made a little ribbon blanket for her grand-daughter. (Check it out here.)   I found an array of football ribbon at JoAnnes and with coupons in hand, I bought a few and quickly made one with the intent to give to our little guy during my Spring Break visit. Unfortunately, as I posted about here,  the only trip I made over my break from teaching was to the doctor. Never the less, I used a blue minky on one side:
This measures 18" x 18".

I used a green satin on the other:

And, I have to say, this one is my very favorite tag

And well, here's the best news: my daughter was able to visit us this weekend so I have to say, these is my very favorite smiles:

I am so grateful to end an very iky Spring Break with their visit. My daughter made me "grandmatis" our house...and I LOVE IT!!!! I'm so rejuvenated after their visit! I am truly grateful today and can't wait to get back to see my second graders. I've missed them. So as I click "post" I hope to inspire you to enjoy your new day too!!
With smiles,
Grandma Val:)
PS: Can you tell I was a Scrapbooker before I started quilting!!

  2. Grand baby hugs and kisses the most precious things of all. I'm visiting my grands this week and enjoying my share. Your little person is soooo cute and I'm happy that you didn't have to miss those smiles completely.

  3. Such a cute baby, beautiful mother and grandmother! I feel like sewing a ribbon blanket as well for my grand-son who must be about the same age than yours (9 months). Greetings.
