    scrappy fleece receiving blanket

    So I had so many scraps of fleece that my plastic fleece bin wouldn't close. I saw Nancy Cornwall's book about polar fleece where she says to overlap the seams and use water soluble double-sided tape to hold them before sewing. So that's what I did--I cut all my fleece scraps, coordinated them into matching colors, made them into rectangles with the wavy rotary cutter, and then made them into blocks, and made this receiving blanket. I have enough scraps left to make some more. It was fun.

    so, is it just one layer of fabric? No backing, right? Love this idea.

    Yes; it's pretty much the same on the front and back.

    I can see any child wanting to snuggle in your adorable and warm quilt. The colors are so bright and cheery...great job of overlapping the fabrics and using the wavy cutter is genius.

    My daughts love smaller single layer fleece blankets to keep in the car to cover up little one or even big ones. they fold up smaller and really are warmer than crochet blankets. This is very cute!!!!!
