    Donated baby blankets

    Made these fleece baby blankets for Phoenix Children's Hospital. I think the crochet edgings set them off.

    So cute! The crocheted edges definitely add the perfect touch! They will be much loved and used I'm sure.

    So pretty and love the colors they are made in. Yes the crochet does set them off for sure.

    I love that look -- almost makes me wish I could crochet! We get a lot of those at our local chapter of Project Linus, and they are my favorites, after quilts, of course.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    They are absolutely adorable. I make some this way also. Not sure where they end up but I do send them to someone on the QB and she distributes them. So relaxing to make.

    I have made dozens of those. I also take the fleece scraps and make hats and mittens. They go very quickly.

    I also like crochet edging on my fleece, but have been told by nurses and another lady that works with Project Linus donations that hospitals don't like crochet items on the beds because they get tangled up in the IV lines more often than not.
    Just passing along what I was told.

    How very sweet! It is so nice of you to make these items for the benefit of others. I know they will be cherished by the new moms and dads.

    That's the first thing I wondered about too. Your blankets are beautiful with the crochet scalloped edges!
