    New "Kuscheldecken" or cuddle blankets

    My daughter visited us for some weeks with our little grandsons (2-1/2 and 3-3/4) from California and you can be sure we were happy to see them all again! Our house was full: our third grandson (3) with his parents came too from Berlin, sometimes we were 11 persons around the table..
    While inspecting my "Nähkeller" or sewing room at the basement they found some fleece fabric I bought some time ago! We want "Kuscheldecken" out of this stuff!
    And as the little one needs a blanket for his nap at preschool I made these blankets for my three grandsons:

    The one for the dragon lover!

    The one for the little car freak!

    And for the little one!

    As my daughter thought the blanket may be a little too warm for California I made a second one only from cuddly fabric and sewed a binding all around!

    And I think it's the right design for preschool!

    Ahhhh, these are adorable, as I'm sure your grandchildren are. My heart melts when I'm around sweet little guys.

    They are wonderful. When I make quilts I usually use batting and the back is flannel - my daughters use them all year long. We are 7 miles north of the Mexican border - it can be 80 degrees outside and they will still wrap up in them. So don't worry - they will use them.

    How cute. Hope the weather is cooler than it is right now in California. The entire west coast of America is going to be baking this weekend.

    What is the alphabet fabric on the back of the last one? It looks so cuddly and I am going to be making an alphabet baby quilt in the very near future and this would be perfect.

    Hello, the alphabet fabric is not the back of any quilt, it's a very fluffy and fury like fleece fabric, I only bind the fabric with som jersey like fabric! It's a real "blanket" and no quilt! I hope you understand what I mean, it's a little bit difficult for me to explain...
