    This is my first time to post a picture. I made this blanket this weekend for DD whos little one is due in Sept. I used six inch squares of stars and hearts patterned flannel and no batting. It is small for a newborn. It was fast and fun to make. Now that I have a digital camera and hope I have this all figured out I will post more of my projects in the future.

    Your blanket is so cute. I really like NOT using interfacing with my flannel blankets. Two layers of flannel is warm and pliable--soft and cuddly.

    your baby blanket is lovely..wish i had seen yours before i started making mine...i will definitely make a raggedy blanket next as you have inspired me. Did you use the spring loaded scissors to cut your fringe as i have heard that normal scissors hurt your hands? I have been looking at some for a while and am saving my pennies (dollars!) for the fiskars ones as they are pretty expensive.

    It is really beautiful! I can picture a little babe snuggled within. I want to make one too! Is your backing a white flannel as well?

    Belinda,
    It is lovely! My 2-year-old is sitting here (on my arm--sorry about the typos). He is loving and talking about the stars!
    Great job!

    The back is the same as the front. Here's a pic of the back.

    Thanks for the pic of the back!
    I think this idea has been moved up to the top of my "must do" list! - I've always put backing in all my quilts and would like to try something a little lighter and baby cozy for my baby coming in April.

    The directions are the very first posting under "Quilting Forum -> Pictures". They are easy to follow. Good luck.

    Cuddly! I love the fabrics you chose. That baby is going to look so sweet bundled in your quilt. Make more!

    I love the sweet little quilt but remind your DD that the baby should never be left unattended while lying on the quilt.

    I hate to keep harping on this, but we have to remember that sometimes crafts and children don't mix.

    Here in Canada those types of quilts would never be mass produced as they would never pass Health Canada safety guidelines and I am sure you have the same type of safety net in the US.

    Your message puzzles me--I don't understand why a flannel blanket is unsafe for a baby? What am I missing here?

    You know I didn't quite understand that either. The baby would actually be covered with the smooth side of the blanket and I never leave my grandbabies unattended. :?: :?: :?:
