Little Cotton Flannel Minky Blankie
The doctor that I work for became a grandma for the first time a couple weeks ago. She is the mama of three boys. And her grand baby is a girl. She is over the moon in love with her. I wanted to make a blanket in honor of the new baby. Grandma is not a cutsie person. She has exquisite taste and she loves bright colors and patterns. I went with this little charm pack. I did not have time to quilt it. So, I just tied each little square. The borders and backing were an off white flannel.
I put a soft piece of chocolate brown minky in the corner for some more texture. That stuff is sooo soft!
I have a daily Mary Engelbreit calendar. I tear them off each day and I keep a lot of them because I can not bear to throw them away! They are sooo stinking cute!! I used this one for a little tag to hang on her bag after I wrapped the blankie. I believe there is a lot of truth in this quote. At least with the grandparents in my kids lives.
