A Quick Little Baby Blanket

I got to make a baby blanket recently, y'all, for some close friends who just had their very first Little- a sweet baby girl! Though I can't call her THAT little... she was over nine pounds! Seriously!

I had so much fun putting it together. I chose a quirky mix of vintage cotton baby sheets, retro fabric scraps, and soft flannel. I really love how it turned out. I made it with only a couple layers of cotton sheet as "batting" so it wouldn't be overly warm for a baby who will spend most of her infancy in summer heat. Then I finished it with cream satin blanket binding and ta-da! A little quilt for a girl who can have little tea parties on it or just roll around and spit up on it.

It came together so quickly and easily it made me start eyeing my fabric stash again... maybe Audrey needs something new for her summertime picnics, too?

Maybe, indeed.


  1. Oh it's so sweet , what a lovely new baby gift and I love the blanket binding for silky edges, I must try that out sometime:)

    1. I know, that binding! Why have I never used it before? And it being so wide made it so easy to work with!
