Oh Baby!

It seems to be baby season.  Neighbors, friends and family are all having babies.   It's so joyful.  I have a new "go to" gift and I love making them.  It's a baby blanket with an embroidered name.
Everyone loves to see their baby's name on a gift, especially when it is an unusual name. I embroider the name on the minkee first. If you don't have a machine that embroiders, you can always stitch a fusible applique.   Then using flannel, I make this self binding blanket using directions from The Missouri Star Quilt Company.   There are so many cute flannels available. Using a 40" square piece of flannel and a 30" piece of minkee, it takes me less than 2 hours, including the embroidery. 
This receiving blanket  is definitely a hit!
