    I wasn't really thinking about the 'dangers' of the raggie quilt. Just remember that if he becomes attached to it (them) it will go everywhere he goes. It will be in the wash frequently. It will be dropped out of the car. He will spit up on it. He will put it in his mouth. You get the picture. Also, my girls preferred these blankies to be small, so that it could easily fit in their purse, or diaper bag.

    I defined a 'snuggle' blankie (we call them loveys) differently then a quilt. I made them quilts that they could drag around when they were a bit older.

    I have made him a quilt and he has 2 others that friends made. This is not to cover him but to snuggle with.

    Do not make him a raggie snuggly. Just think of him sucking on the ragged part and a few threads maybe coming off and him inhaling them. Way too dangerous. I know you want something to give him immediately, but it is safer to take a little more time and planning.

    Ok, no raggie. Now I have to come up with a different plan.

    Have not heard from DH if we are even going yet. It's 4:30 and we would leave at 7:30! Wish he would call me back!

    Rather than raggy, how about minky trim

    That is the Velveteen Rabbit quote, rabbit asked the worn horse, "does love hurt." My friend is the quilt whisper of the area.. she repairs those well loved quilts that have holes, shredded fabric in the middle.. ect.. Each quilt I make I truly wish that they would become so very loved.

    I have made 18 x 18 square (blankets) flannel on side, silky back's and blanket binding. no batting. stitched left - right, up - down about two inches apart. Used them for placing newborn on something soft at first. over shoulder as something soft. for a drag along or as they grew, to wrap their own baby dolls. worked out nicely.

    My grandkids call them "ni-nites!" I make them about 16-18 inches square. I use flannel on one side, cut about 1.5" smaller than the other side made of satin.
    Then I use the satin, bringing it around from the back to make a binding on the front with mitered corners. You could also use minkie on one side and satin on the other.

    The recommendation I have always heard from pediatricians is that they be no more than ten inches square, and should have holes (either be knit or crocheted).
