Our dear friends are expecting a baby girl in October, and we are so excited! I attended the baby shower last weekend, and for one of the gifts, I made this blanket.
I fell in love with this fabric when I found it. It is very pink, but it is for a baby girl! I think that the organic print with touches of orange keep it from being too pink. I used this tutorial by Tea Rose Home to do the self binding. Before binding, I added batting to the back of the printed fabric to give the blanket a little loft. The backing is a pale pink that coordinates well with the print. I did a little "free hand" quilting with my machine to finish it off. I imagine a small lofty blanket like this would be great for a baby to play on. I hope Baby E likes it!
