Soft and Light

Lightweight.
Simple.
Practical.
 
This receiving blanket is just 2 pieces of flannel.

I tried to make it special by hand stitching around the outside...

and adding some FUN ribbon loops to the side.
I call these "LOVING touches".
 
This little blanket measures 40"x40"
 
Soft and cuddly.
A "quilt" for these HOT summer days.
;)
 
Fabrics used were both Robert Kaufman....
Different designers:
Bonny bloom by Lesley Grainger and Nordica by Darcel Phillips.
When I bought them I thought they were the SAME designer.
..........
After googling them....
I THINK the blue birds were designed for a Christmas line of fabric.
:)
The baby will never know.

Here's the HOW TO video...
if you're interested.  ;)
