Like many of you, I enjoy making baby quilts but find new moms seem to use the heck out of these extra large, flannel receiving blankets. The first one I made is for my instructional assistant who is having a baby boy in February and doing an "outdoor" theme for his nursery. The middle one is for my stash of baby gifts and the third one is for a friend who is having a little girl and they are having a "mermaid" themed shower for her. (Cute huh!) So quick and easy to sew them right sides together, turn right side out and add a decorative stitch around the perimeter. (Finished size: 45"x45")
Plus! These are blankets that seem to be a favorite with the little ones for quite awhile,
as witnessed by our own grand guy. Here he is a few days old with his Dinosaur R.B.:
Here he is last June with it as he packed all his "favorite things" to go to preschool.
It doesn't get better than that does it.
Wishing you all a great start to the week.
Our snow days are FINALLY over and I'm looking forward to a NORMAL week.
Well, as normal as things get around here! LOL!!
