Receiving Blanket Quilt
This is a quilt made with Minkee from Minkee Delight Fabrics and flannel receiving blankets that someone bought me as gift from Target. I have about 10 or more in good condition from the last two times and I thought something special could be made out of these instead. They are so cute, but babies grow out of them too quick.
Patchwork and Minkee were sewn right sides together and turned right side out. There is no batting between the layers. I quilted straight lines in the ditch between the rows. It finished at about 36 by 60 inches. The bricks are 4 by 9 inches. Anna loved the texture of the dots and it fits Zoe's crib well. I liked how quick it came together. Zoe was only about a couple months old at the time. So fast was good!
Maybe I will make a tutorial on how to make one if there is interest.
Sorry about the lousy flash picture. The sun disappeared this afternoon.
