Crafty Moment ~ Quilted Baby Blanket

This afternoon, I sat down at my machine – I knew I wanted to sew, but what? So ~ without a direction, I started piecing some flannel scraps together. Just putting together ones that looked pretty (pronounced purty!)

As it grew, I wondered what could be done with it (too fuzzy for a table runner, too big for a pee pee cloth, too small for a bed spread).

I kept sewing, noting how the colors complimented & how soft the flannel. And then I saw it – a baby blanket!

When the top was finished, I found some synthetic wool fabric for the batting & some soft fleece for the backing. Sew. Sew. See Sadie Sew.






Top stitching the quilt took FOREVER!!! Holy crap. I am beat – but I wanted to show ‘n tell ASAP ūüėČ

If it wasn’t midnight, I’d be walking across the street delivering this baby to the new baby in town! So excited to have made this!!
