Hi everyone, I spent the weekend making blankets for the new baby by sewing to one yard pieces of fabric together right sides facing and turning them inside out and sewing around the edge. Cheryl asked about the minky receiving blanket so here is how it is made. I cut squares out of flannel and minky (the super soft fabric by moda) (you do not prewash this stuff) and then sewed them together 5 squares by 5 then took a whole piece of minky same size as the quilt and sewed it together right sides facing each other...turned it right side out and bound it with 3 inch flannel. You dont need to line it, quilt or tie it. This was Nicoles favorite receiving blanket for Jillian. When she was in labor she had in with her and then after Jillian was born they put it on her. Hope everyone has a good week.

I have a couple of baby quilts I would like to make. That sounds so easy, I will have to give it a try. Thanks

How fun! A little baby on the way--lucky you. I am actually looking forward to the grandmother days although my children are only 16, 14 and 7. I hope God blesses me with those years with them.
