After spending WAY too much on my last three quilts, I decided to think thriftier and came up with this idea. I love consignment sales and as I am looking for clothes for my kids I check out the receiving blankets. Flannel in cute kid patterns. I am storing up to make baby quilts using the string-quilt-as-you-go method. These will be my backings. All 13 blankets for $10 and 4 of them are brand new. I estimate at least 1/2 - 1 yard in each blanket.
