Our good friends adopted their precious baby boy in December and we had a baby shower for them yesterday. I had fun making this one, and it went really fast too, which is always nice. This brown squirrel fabric is a super soft baby flannel I found at JoAnns. There’s just something about those little squirrels, so cute. This blanket is not quilted but tied instead; though, not with actual ties, since its for a baby. I just used a machine stitch on each corner. I forgot to measure, but its around 40 inches square. I also used the cheat method in doing the binding. I cut the backing fabric (squirrel fabric) big enough so that I could double fold it around to the front and then machine stitch the binding in place. Wow that went so much faster than any other binding I’ve done before. Its simple piecing and simple quilting for a simply beautiful little boy. We’re so thankful for Brown!
